Latest figures confirm New York state as world epicentre of Covid-19.

By Paul Dennis

New York state has now had ten times as many confirmed cases of Covid-19 as London.

Our Coronavirus city-tracker drills down into national data to show how urban states and regions continue to have the lion’s share of cases worldwide.

The latest iteration shows some positive trends – with New York, Madrid, Lombardia and London all reporting fewer new daily cases than before.

While higher figures in US states to some extent reflect more widespread testing, the data lays bear the devastation wrought in New York.

The wider state has now seen 247,815 confirmed cases of Covid-19 – or one third of all cases reported in the US.
