The US has reported 100 deaths from the coronavirus as of March 17. 

Deaths per state:

Washington: 50
New York: 13
California: 12
Florida: 6
Louisiana: 4
New Jersey: 3
Virginia: 2
Indiana: 2
Nevada: 1
Kansas: 1
South Dakota: 1
Georgia: 1
Colorado: 1
Oregon: 1
Kentucky: 1
Texas: 1
South Carolina: 1
Illinois: 1


The country's case tally is at 6,143 with patients reported in at least 49 states and Washington, DC. The illness has also spread to Guam, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.

The World Health Organization declared the outbreak a pandemic on March 11, and on March 13, President Donald Trump declared a national emergency in response to the pandemic.

Trump has enforced a 30-day travel ban for people traveling from Europe, but US citizens, permanent residents and some of their immediate family will be exempt.

Because county- and state-level health authorities are reporting the latest case counts before the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does, Business Insider is tallying those local reports and updating this story live to give a comprehensive picture of where — and to what degree — the coronavirus is spreading in the US.

The virus, which originated in Wuhan, China, in December, causes a respiratory disease known as COVID-19. Nearly 7,800 people have died and over 195,000 others have been infected, many of whom were in China. Cases have been recorded in more than 145 countries.

Here's everything we know about the coronavirus in the US — in the list below, states are ordered by their number of cases.

102 people have died from the coronavirus on US soil.

Washington has reported 50 deaths. The first — a man in his 50s who had chronic underlying health issues — was reported February 29 at EvergreenHealth, a hospital in Kings County, Washington. Two of the Washington patients died February 26, but their diagnoses were confirmed posthumously on March 10, making them the earliest known coronavirus fatalities in the US. 

California's 11 deaths included a woman in her 60s in Santa Clara County, a woman who was treated at Kaiser Permanente in Placer County, and a woman in her 90s from Sacramento County.

Twelve people have died in New York as of March 17 and six have died in Florida.

New Jersey announced its first death on March 10: a man in his 60s. Since then, a woman in her 50s and a man his 90s have been the state's two other coronavirus victims.

Of Louisiana's four deaths, one was a 58-year-old Orleans Parish resident with underlying health conditions, officials said on March 14.

Two Virginia residents have succumbed to the coronavirus as have two people in Indiana. 

Texas, Colorado, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Nevada, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Illinois have reported one death each.

One person who died in California was likely exposed to the coronavirus on the Grand Princess cruise ship. That passenger had disembarked, but at least 21 people who were on board in early March tested positive.

The ship has unloaded passengers at the Port of Oakland. Sixty-two people on board had been on the last voyage with the person who died in California.

Two passengers and 19 crew members have tested positive, but it is still unclear how many of those people are from the US, so they do not yet factor into the country's total number of cases.

The healthy US passengers will be quarantined for 14 days at military bases in California, Texas, or Georgia. Crew members — including some who tested positive — are staying on the ship.
