Latest Mass. Map And Case Count: Breaking Down Coronavirus Here In Charts

The Department of Public Health (DPH) updates data on deaths and cases by city and town once a week, on Wednesdays. Click on the interactive above to see how your town or city has been affected. For more, explore a sortable table with each city and town here.

Each day, DPH releases a dashboard of its data tracking cases and deaths by race, sex and geography. You can find more on that information on this page.


Tracking Cases, Deaths And Tests Over Time

DPH is now providing case, death and test numbers by the date the case, death or test actually occurred (not just the day it was reported out). WBUR is now updating the charts below to show the day-of numbers.

Please note: In all three categories — especially deaths — there is a lag as the numbers come in. So a sharp drop off in recent days might not mean an actual decrease, but a delay in the numbers updating.
