COVID-19: Close to 20,000 additional cases reported in US

According to CDC's update on May 28, the case count of COVID-19 in the US stands at 1,698,523* cases, including 100,446* deaths, in 55 (50 states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, Northern Marianas, and US Virgin Islands) jurisdictions. This represents an additional 19,680 cases and 1,415 deaths compared to the update on May 27.

Thirty jurisdictions reported more than 10,000 cases, 9 jurisdictions reported 5,001 to 10,000 cases, 8 jurisdictions reported 1,001 to 5,000 cases and 8 jurisdictions reported 1 to 1,000 cases of COVID-19.

* As of April 14, 2020, CDC case counts and death counts include both confirmed and probable cases and deaths. This change was made to reflect an interim COVID-19 position statement issued by the Council for State and Territorial Epidemiologists on April 5, 2020. The position statement included a case definition and made COVID-19 a nationally notifiable disease.

A confirmed case or death is defined by meeting confirmatory laboratory evidence for COVID-19.

A probable case or death is defined by one of the following:

  • Meeting clinical criteria AND epidemiologic evidence with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID-19
  • Meeting presumptive laboratory evidence AND either clinical criteria OR epidemiologic evidence
  • Meeting vital records criteria with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID19

The 20 jurisdictions with the highest case counts, and their daily additional confirmed cases and deaths (in brackets) over the week are compiled as follows.
