Coronavirus in Missouri: Where are the positive COVID-19 cases?

  

At least 171,022 Missourians have tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus) and 2,810 people have died. 

Gov. Mike Parson declared a state of emergency and implemented a statewide stay at home order which has now been lifted. A national emergency was declared as well as the pandemic spread. 

The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” while the disease is called “coronavirus disease 2019,” or “COVID-19.” It can cause severe respiratory illnesses with symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned.

A total of 171,022 cases have been confirmed by state officials with more than 2.4 million people having been tested. The first fatality was reported on March 18. Parson and the first lady tested positive for COVID-19 on Sept. 23.

For the week ending Oct. 23, the positivity rate over seven days was 22.7 percent per the state’s  method and 11.5 percent by the CDC’s methodology. Nearly 1,400 people were hospitalized, including 481 who were in the ICU and 174 who needed ventilators. In all, nearly 11,000 new cases were reported in that seven day period.

Here is a look at where the positive cases are, according to the latest data from DHSS. These numbers can change daily as investigators discover more about where cases originated.
