About this data Sources: State and local health agencies (cases, deaths); U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (tests, hospitalizations). The seven-day average is the average of a day and the previous six days of data. Currently hospitalized is the most recent number of patients with Covid-19 reported by hospitals in the state for the four days prior. Dips and spikes could be due to inconsistent reporting by hospitals. Hospitalization numbers early in the pandemic are undercounts due to incomplete reporting by hospitals to the federal government. Tests represent the number of individual P.C.R. viral test specimens tested by laboratories and state health departments and reported to the federal government.

Outbreak clusters

Since March 2020, The Times has paid special attention to cases in the types of places with some of the worst outbreaks, like nursing homes, food processing plants and correctional facilities.

Cases Connected To Location Cases
University of Puerto Rico, Medical Sciences San Juan, P.R. 65
About this data Information on cases linked to these places comes from official releases by governments, companies and institutions directly. The Times is publishing lists of groupings of 50 or more cases related to a specific site, workplace or event.

About the data

In data for Puerto Rico, The Times primarily relies on reports from the territory. Puerto Rico typically releases new data each day. Weekend counts may be lower because fewer sources report to the territory.

The Times has identified the following reporting anomalies or methodology changes in the data:

  • April 13, 2021: The reported number of tests likely includes many older tests.
  • March 30, 2021: The daily testing count includes many older tests.
  • Oct. 23, 2020: Puerto Rico added a backlog of test results from unspecified days.
  • April 21, 2020: Puerto Rico revised the number of cases downward after resolving an issue with duplicates.
  • April 12, 2020: Puerto Rico started including some probable Covid-19-related deaths. From April 19 to April 22, the territory stopped reporting probable deaths, and then continued again on April 23.
  • The territorial health department acknowledged in late April that it had been double-counting some patients. That issue had been resolved by early May, officials said.
  • Muncipality-level weekly cases per capita are shown starting in early May, when The Times began gathering the data.
  • On Nov. 7, Puerto Rico updated its case definitions and recategorized thousands of previously announced cases identified through antibody testing as suspected cases. Officials had previously included these cases as probable cases. The Times data includes cases identified through antibody testing announced before Nov. 7, but includes only cases identified through P.C.R. or antigen testing after this date.

The tallies on this page include probable and confirmed cases and deaths.

Confirmed cases and deaths, which are widely considered to be an undercount of the true toll, are counts of individuals whose coronavirus infections were confirmed by a molecular laboratory test. Probable cases and deaths count individuals who meet criteria for other types of testing, symptoms and exposure, as developed by national and local governments.

Governments often revise data or report a single-day large increase in cases or deaths from unspecified days without historical revisions, which can cause an irregular pattern in the daily reported figures. The Times is excluding these anomalies from seven-day averages when possible.
