How coronavirus is spreading in Hillsborough County
Update June 4, 2021: This site is now archived following the Florida Department of Health's decision to no longer provide daily updates to their covid database. The CDC still maintains a subset of the covid data which can be found here.
Update Jan. 21, 2021: Earlier versions of this interactive included charts showing test positivity rates for Florida and individual counties. The rates had been calculated from the total numbers of people testing positive and negative, the only type of testing data published in the state Department of Health's online databases. As more people get repeat tests, the figure has become less useful, and has diverged with those in public reports, which track the positivity rate on an individual day.
Over the past week, the number of new coronavirus deaths in Hillsborough County has been going down.
The county is currently averaging 1.3 new deaths per day. By Thursday, a total of 1,855 people had died.
In total, 143,624 people have tested positive for the coronavirus — 10,416 per 100,000 residents, or 1 in every 10 people. A total of 809,062 coronavirus test results have been recorded.
