ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Coming out of the winter months, and following a steady decline in COVID-19 cases, health professionals continue to watch the outbreak very closely as vaccination efforts continue across the region.

While demand continues to outpace supply by a wide margin, health systems, county health departments, and independent vaccination centers have been working around the clock to get doses to the public.

The data in the above interactive is from the CDC and will vary slightly from the data reported by the Arizona Department of Health Services due to reporting delays.

The vaccine rollout coincides with a precipitous drop in cases, as well as a steady decline in positivity rate across both states. 

Confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus in Missouri and Illinois have declined steadily, as have the positivity rates and hospitalizations rates in both states. As vaccinations begin, the spread of COVID-19 has been held in check. 

In the St. Louis area, health officials are closely monitoring hospitalizations and hospital bed availability since the winter months began, and to this point, the region appears to have adequate capacity. 

The average number of new daily cases in the region held steady for a time, but spiked heavily in July. After jumping from roughly 200 cases per day to more than 600 cases per day during the heat of summer, the increase leveled off before climbing again in October. Some of that increase was due to testing being more widely available across the region. 

After spiking in mid-November, new cases began falling through the winter months. Early January saw another increase, but all statistics then began trending in a positive direction through January and into February. 

In the St. Louis area, St. Louis County, St. Louis City and St. Clair County have seen the most cases. St. Louis County has recorded the highest numbers of deaths.

Illinois has seen many more cases than Missouri, and has seen about three times as much testing. 

More than 20 million tests have been conducted in Illinois and the state has seen a 98% recovery rate.

Here is a look at which areas of the News 4 viewing area have been the most heavily impacted by the virus:
