Latest COVID-19 cases, deaths and hospitalizations in the DC region

With coronavirus cases rising again across the country and in the D.C. region, WTOP continues to track key metrics using public data from state health agencies and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The rollout of vaccines dramatically cut transmission rates after they surged during the winter holidays. But the pandemic is not over: The emergence of new, more virulent strains poses a grave threat for communities with a large number of unvaccinated people.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the immunologist who has led the nation's pandemic response, said he fears the emergence of "two Americas" from a rift between vaccinated and unvaccinated areas.

Our retooled tracker is updated every day with state-level data from Maryland, and on weekdays for D.C. and Virginia. For a more local perspective, the maps at the bottom of this page show new cases and total deaths per capita, county-by-county.







The interactive national maps below, provided by The Associated Press, automatically update once per day and show the seven-day average of new COVID-19 cases per capita and total deaths. See how your region compares to the rest of the country.
