As of May 23, 2020, Mississippi is separating out PCR and antibody tests. We now report both separately.
Between June 17 and June 22, 2020, Mississippi experienced technical difficulties with their reporting system. We filled in five days of case and death data on June 22, 2020.
On September 11, 2020, we discovered a new source for Mississippi current hospitalizations and current ICU admissions on the Mississippi State Department of Health website.
On September 15, 2020, Mississippi resumed reporting current hospitalizations, ICU, and ventilations on the source we have historically used for this metric. We are working to backfill these data points in our historical data.
Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.
