Interpreted correctly, test positivity can tell us so much that we need to know about COVID-19 outbreaks and testing in the United States. But we don’t publish test positivity calculations for US states and territories. Here’s why.
kissaneOur test positivity (aka percent positive) research been an absolute beast, but we're making headway on at least learning how bad the chaos really is. Which is…pretty bad.

The COVID Tracking Project collects and publishes the most complete testing data available for US states and territories.

The COVID Tracking Project collects information from 50 US states and the District of Columbia to provide the most comprehensive public data we can on state-level testing for the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.
kissaneThere's some misinformation going around about @COVID19Tracking, so I'd like to point out a few things. This is our core testing dataset: covidtracking.com/data
If you click through to each state/territory, you can see the whole history, including dashboard screenshots.
kissaneThis week's update from @COVID19Tracking is in, and as expected, it's grim. We're approaching half a million people diagnosed with COVID-19 each week in the US. Hospitalizations still way up, and a lot of death reports coming in from states.
kissaneI am of course v much not an epidemiologist, but I'm confused about why so many non-epi commentators write as though we understand the early phases of the NY/NJ outbreaks despite evidence that they took off well before widepread testing.
kissaneTwitter beloved, do any of you know any srsly great devops/stability folks who could throw a few hours (or more, we're hungry) into our volunteer borg at @COVID19Tracking ? My DMs are a real thicket of weirdness and bad UI rn, erin at incisive.nu is my email.
