Daily Data

While the City of St. Louis, St. Louis County, and Kansas City provide day-by-day tracking of cumulative cases on their respective dashboards, the State of Missouri does not. The following tabs provide daily breakdowns of COVID data as well as additional statistics not included in the existing dashboards. Data are also provided for the wider St. Louis and Kansas City metro areas. Please note that the two average columns for reported cases and deaths are both seven-day rolling averages.
