The spread in the states
Using criteria provided by the White House, analysts at Covidexitstrategy.org are tracking each state’s progress in reducing symptoms and case numbers and conducting testing.
The group of public health and crisis experts includes members from the U.S. Digital Response and Duke University’s Margolis Center for Health Policy and has built the website to track each state’s progress toward stopping the spread of COVID-19. Members of the team have experience working at the White House, Department of Health and Human Services and on the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, the website says.
The group says a downward trajectory of illness reported and of documented cases is critical. So far, not many states have a downward trend, but several are getting close.
