AP uses data collected by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering as its source for COVID-19 cases and deaths.

AP has paired this data with population figures and county rural/urban designations, and has calculated caseload and death rates per 100,000 people. Its dataset is now available to any organization that signs up for a free account on data.world.

AP updates this dataset hourly at 45 minutes past the hour.

In addition to the data, AP is also offering an embeddable interactive visualization.

AP demonstrated its COVID-19 data in a webinar on April 16.
