While the number of deaths related to the novel coronavirus has been falling around the country, several states are still dealing with an increase in cases and an emergence of hotspots.

As of June 2, at least 105,095 people in the U.S. have died of COVID-19, and over 1.8 million people have tested positive for the virus, according to The New York Times.

In the last 14 days, many states such as California, Mississippi and Alabama have experienced a growth in cases, which the Times attributed in part to an increase in testing and partial reopening.

The Times recently compiled data from counties around the country with new cases, comparing the number of confirmed cases on May 31 with numbers from two weeks ago.
