Alaska Coronavirus Response Hub has the latest data from the state. The state made significant changes to its case count dashboard on Nov. 16, 2020:
"Due to the increase in cases statewide, certain areas of data entry are lagging far behind real-time and we are not able to update cases with the date they are released from isolation (recovered). As a result, we are removing the active and recovered case counts from the data hub to prevent inaccurate or outdated information from being reported."
A note on case counts: KDLG generally reports COVID-19 case counts from the Bristol Bay Area Health Corporation, the Camai Community Health Center in Naknek, and the state health department. BBAHC says that it reports cases it has identified, while the state’s dashboard reports cases from a wide range of sources. The timing of these announcements sometimes doesn't line up because the state's reporting is not immediately synchronized with regional and community health facilities.
