If you’re a visual learner like me, you’ll appreciate this COVID-19 USA Heat Map.  (I’ve added the bolding to verbiage in the next paragraph.)

“The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine represent pharmacists, medical directors and health care providers and professionals in the skilled nursing home and senior care environments. Using publicly available information released by states and information sourced by members of these organizations, a general heat map has been created at a zip code level. This information is being provided to the public for use in identifying hot spots within the skilled nursing home industry. Resources in terms of PPE, medications, supplies and personnel may be allocated or positioned based on information from this heat map.
