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 11th, due to a technical issue, Mississippi did not provide new updates. Beginning June 17th MS paused reporting data: "Our daily COVID-19 update will be limited as we work to resolve technical problems in our data reporting system." Current lab-confirmed hospitalization cases from MSDH Twitter 6/19. As of 6/21 all case and testing data was last updated 6/16 at 18:00. Currently hospitalized, in ICU, and on ventilator data was updated 6/20. On 6/22 MS added five days' backlog of case and death data. On 7/7 we erroneously reported additional Negatives for MS. We have corrected the error.
