I Got the Coronavirus Test. My Ordeal Was Just Beginning.

I Got the Coronavirus Test. My Ordeal Was Just Beginning.Like so many individuals struggling to navigate the U.S. health care system in recent weeks, I’ve had to contend with contradictory advice, misinformation, misunderstandings and a suffocating bureaucracy struggling to take responsibility for anything.On Thursday, March 5, I began my own odyssey trying to determine if I, too, had contracted COVID-19. In some ways, I was fortunate, as I actually managed to get tested for the disease. As a journalist and researcher who monitors social media for COVID-19 rumors and disinformation, I’ve seen countless first-person examples of people fearful about their inability to get tested, stymied by dead-end phone numbers and contradictory advice.

Seeking to provide him political cover and…

How to Understand Your State’s Coronavirus Numbers

How to Understand Your State’s Coronavirus NumbersEvery piece of data we currently have about the novel coronavirus is imperfect and incomplete.Almost three weeks after the first confirmed case of community spread—a patient who had not traveled anywhere with known cases or had contact with anyone known to be infected— the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still is not publishing state-level data about how many people have been tested for the virus.As a result, The Atlantic has been maintaining the Covid Tracking Project, the only source of state-level testing data through time, in collaboration with the data scientist Jeff Hammerbacher and a team of volunteers. That work has taught us how to read the different types of numbers that are trickling out of local, state, and federal agencies. The project has been able to track just over 8,000 people tested in the United States, where there are more than 1,000…
