(ABC 6 News) - Mayo Clinic introduced a tracking tool that features the latest COVID-19 data for every county in all 50 states in the nation, and offers insight on how to assess risk and plan accordingly.
The interactive map offers key data and trends in an easy-to-use format. Data include the total number of cases by county and state, new cases per day, positive test rate and fatality rate, presented with trends over time and Mayo Clinic guidance on how to take action.
"From our experience in treating patients and talking with them about their concerns, we believe there's a need for easy-to-access local data on COVID-19 trends and what it means," says Henry Ting, M.D., a cardiologist, health services researcher and educator at Mayo Clinic. "This tracker enables people to see ongoing and emerging hot spots across the U.S., where they live, where their family and friends live, and where they might travel, along with information from Mayo Clinic experts about risk, diagnoses and treatments."
Mayo Clinic's COVID-19 resource center provides guidance on how to wear a mask properly, maintain social distancing, wash hands frequently, and clean and disinfect surfaces. It also includes a self-assessment tool for users to determine whether they have symptoms and should seek medical care, and information for COVID-19 survivors on how to donate plasma to help others.
