The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has launched a weekly report that will track COVID-19 indicators and statistics.

COVIDView will be updated weekly on Fridays, and it will summarize key data such as COVID-19 outpatient and emergency department visits, hospitalizations, deaths, and laboratory data.

The first report shows the following:

  • Visits to outpatient providers and emergency departments for illnesses with symptoms that could indicate COVID-19 are elevated compared to what is typically seen at this time of year.
  • Overall, the cumulative COVID-19-associated hospitalization rate is 4.6 per 100,000, with the highest rates in people 65 years and older (13.8 per 100,000) and 50 to 64 years (7.4 per 100,000).
  • The percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza increased to 8.2% and is above the epidemic threshold of 7.2%.

Additional data sources will be added over time, the CDC said.
