The New York Times has compiled a list of COVID-19 hot spots across the U.S. and Racine made the list.

The list takes into account the population of each city, and counts the number of new cases within the past two weeks.

Racine is number 14 on the list with 632 new cases. However, the curve is listed as "flat or decreasing."

The article states that cities with curves that are "flat" or "flattening" can expect to move down the list in the coming days and weeks.

Racine is also on the list of highest average daily growth rate of deaths with a 4% daily growth rate and 8 recent deaths.

A bit further north, Green Bay is listed as one of the cities headed in the right direction. They are down 90.5 cases per 100,000 people and have almost 300 less cases than a week ago.
