  • Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infections estimates and insights: Continuing with the Long COVID theme of this issue: I recently learned about this dashboard from the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. It provides estimates of Long COVID cases in the U.S. based on case numbers from Johns Hopkins University and a model assuming that 30% of surviving COVID-19 cases will lead to long-term symptoms. The dashboard includes estimates of total Long COVID cases, cases over time, and cases by state.
  • Disease severity among hospitalized patients (CDC): The CDC added a new page to its COVID-19 dashboard this week, providing data on the shares of COVID-19 patients in U.S. hospitals who require intensive care and ventilation, and who die while at the hospital. The data come from the CDC’s hospitalization surveillance network and other federal hospital sources.
  • Vaccination dashboard annotations: This weekend, I updated my annotations page detailing how every U.S. state and several national sources track vaccinations. 39 states are now reporting some data on booster shots or third doses, I found, though most of them still aren’t providing demographic data reflecting the recipients of these additional doses.
