In the United States, the COVID-19 virus has infected approximately 27 million people, and there have been over 462,000 deaths. According to the New York State Department of Health COVID-19 tracker, there have been 1,470,772 confirmed COVID-19 cases, and there have been 36,224 deaths statewide. As of
1:40 p.m. on February 7, Allegany County’s statistics are as follows:

Confirmed Cases: 2,728 (4 new)
Recovered Cases: 2,560

Effective February 3, the Allegany County Department of Health will begin reporting statistics via a County Dashboard at https://arcg.is/0KGnyu. While we will continue to send press releases with the daily statistics for approximately a week, we are transitioning to this means of reporting in an effort to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information in conjunction with the NYSDOH statistics as some entities report directly to New York State and not to the County Health Department. You will notice that some statistics will migrate to the NYS reported numbers (to include deaths, tests administered, etc.) in an effort to mitigate discrepancies between data sets.
