How coronavirus is spreading in the Tampa Bay region
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.
281,616 people have contracted COVID-19 in the zip codes surrounding Tampa Bay. That's 9,125 per 100,000 residents, or 1 in every 11. During the week ending Thursday, the number of new cases has risen.
If those trends continue, you can expect 1,785 new cases to be added by next week.
We calculated this number by taking any zip code that touches Tampa Bay’s boundaries. The state doesn’t report deaths or tests by zip code, so we only have information on cases.
