The increase in driving activity across our US network since mid-May is clearly supportive of an economic reopening story.
That said, the “return to normalcy” has diverged meaningfully on a state-level. While Ohio and Colorado are nearing a full recovery from the COVID-induced shutdown, New York and Nevada remain well below pre-COVID levels.
Driving activity seems to be highly correlated with the growth in new infections by state. To illustrate this, we see much stronger 2-week trends in early hotspots (even despite protests), in comparison to emerging hotspots like Arizona & Florida. We’ll continue to monitor this relationship, especially as investors, businesses and consumers react to a potential “Second Wave” of the virus.
Our network produces visual data as well. We were able to capture many powerful images of on-going social unrest in recent weeks — https://getnexar.com/virtualcam.
