The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center had been displaying a lower rate of vaccinations in Hawaii than what the state had been reporting because the CRC was collecting its data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vaccine Tracker. However, Hawaii has been reporting data via its state dashboard more quickly. Therefore, the Coronavirus Resource Center has successfully adjusted its method to extract data from the state that it could not previously access. The percentage of Hawaii’s population that is fully vaccinated has been updated to reflect the most up-to-date, higher number.
Alaska's positivity rate dropped on Friday from 1.7% to -0.2% because of a daily decrease of 185,933 total tests. Excluding that unexplained decline, Alaska's positivity rate would be 1.5%.

Alabama reported that a recent spike in the number of total tests reported was caused by backlogs the state recently processed from two large facilities over the last three to four days. The surge in cases applies to past dates, not the state’s current situation. We will provide a clearer explanation as the state provides more information.
Mississippi’s seven-day rolling average for test positivity rate jumped from nearly 14% to 308% because for every day of the past week the state has reported either zero or less than 200 tests. Typically, the state reports at least 10,000 tests over seven days. We are seeking answers from Mississippi officials about the abrupt decline.
