  • Description:
    For surveillance of COVID-19 and its cause, SARS-CoV-2, in the United States, CDC is using multiple surveillance systems run in collaboration with state, local and territorial health departments, public health, commercial and clinical laboratories, vital statistics offices, health care providers, emergency departments and academic partners to monitor COVID-19 disease in the United States. COVIDView provides a weekly summary and interpretation of a variety of surveillance systems that will be used to track the progression and severity of COVID-19 disease throughout the course of the pandemic. The data summarized in COVIDView draws from a combination of existing influenza and viral respiratory disease surveillance systems, syndromic surveillance systems, and reporting of laboratory results. These systems, when evaluated together, create an ongoing picture of the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and its effects in the United States and provide data to inform the U.S. national public health response to COVID-19. The data presented in COVIDView each week are preliminary and may change as more data are received.

    The U.S. COVID-19 Surveillance goals are to:

    • Monitor spread and intensity of COVID-19 disease in the United States

    • Understand disease severity and the spectrum of illness

    • Understand risk factors for severe disease and transmission

    • Monitor for changes in the virus that causes COVID-19

    • Estimate disease burden

    • Produce data for forecasting COVID-19 spread and impact
