Where did the fevers go?

Summary:
This website tracks real time fevers using thermometers connected to the internet.  A first glance at their map suggests to me that: fevers spiked two week ago. The timing of the spike is similar across the country, but magnitude greater in those regions with more COVID-19 deaths. The time difference in the peak across counties is at most a few days. Does this mean that the rest of the country is not significantly lagging NYC?  Or that COVID-19 fevers are a small fraction of all fevers?
