Data notes

Negatives = Total - Positives. Hospitalizations are calculated by calculating multiplying % of hospitalized times total cases, pending clarification from the state. Recoveries are estimated, and updated twice weekly.

As of May 23, Mississippi is separating out PCR and antibody tests; we report PCR specimens tested. Total tests might be impacted. Mississippi notes that hospitalization data for May 23 is incomplete.

On June 11, due to a technical issue, Mississippi did not provide new updates.

On June 17, Mississippi paused reporting data: "Our daily COVID-19 update will be limited as we work to resolve technical problems in our data reporting system." Data was sporadically updated until on June 22, Mississippi added five days' backlog of case and death data.

On July 7 we erroneously reported additional Negatives for Mississippi. We have corrected the error.
