Is there a benefit to using raster analysis to map COVID-19 spread?

Would like to map the possible spread of COVID - 19 from point data, can move to a centroid of the county and after there I am lost.

I'm not sure if converting the point data to raster would be particularly helpful for analysis, as health data is discrete and raster data is continuous.

I would try this learn lesson on Emerging Hotspot Analysis, as it may answer your questions: 

Additionally, take a look at the new time series forecasting tools in Pro: Introducing Time Series Forecasting in ArcGIS Pro
