Confirmed COVID-19 Cases, Metropolitan and Nonmetropolitan Counties

The presence of COVID-19 cases impacts rural and metropolitan areas differently – a small number of cases creates stress for low capacity systems just as a large volume of cases creates stress for larger capacity systems. This RUPRI data brief shows the current nonmetropolitan and metropolitan spread of the disease, and the associated map shows how the disease has spread over time. This report is updated daily, Monday through Friday.

The white paper initially released on March 26, 2020, by Fred Ullrich, MA, and Keith Mueller, Ph.D.; RUPRI Center for Health Policy Analysis @ The University of Iowa.
