Weekly Update: How #COVID19 has spread across every U.S. state & territory per capita over time

COVID-19 Icon

A picture is worth 1,000 words and all that.

I've done my best to label every state/territory, which obviously isn't easy to do for most of them given how tangled it gets in the middle.

NOTE: I've recently updated the spreadsheet to account for the official 2020 Census Bureau populations of every state. In most cases this has nudged their case & mortality rates down slightly.

Nearly 1 out of every 7 residents of North Dakota, South Dakota and Rhode Island have tested positive for COVID-19 to date.

More than 1 out of every 9 residents of Iowa, Tennessee, Utah, Arizona, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Arkansas.

More than 1 out of 10 in New Jersey, Indiana, Delaware, Mississippi, Kansas, Alabama, Illinois, Florida, New York, Georgia, Idaho, Wisconsin, Nevada, Minnesota, Wyoming, Montana and Texas.

More than 1 out of 20 in every state & territory EXCEPT Guam, Maine, Oregon, Vermont, U.S. Virgin Islands, Hawaii, N. Mariana Islands & American Samoa.

Next, let's look at the cumulative mortality rate for every U.S. state and territory. Here, New Jersey and New York are still worse than the rest of the country (primarily due to their mass deaths from March - May last spring)...but as you can see, several other states are, tragically, also catching up to them on this front as well.

COVID-19 has killed over 1 out of every 360 residents of New Jersey.

It's killed more than 1 out of every 380 New Yorkers.

More than 1 out of every 400 Massachusetts residents.

More than 1 out of every 500 residents of Rhode Island, Mississippi, Arizona, Connecticut, Louisiana, South Dakota, Alabama and Pennsylvania.

More than 1 out of 600 in Indiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Arkansas, Illinois, Georgia, Michigan, Iowa, South Carolina, Tennessee, Nevada, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.

More than 1 out of 700 in Delaware, Florida, Ohio, District of Columbia, California, Missouri, West Virginia, Montana, Kentucky and Maryland.

More than 1 out of 800 in Minnesota and Virginia.

More than 1 out of 900 in Wyoming, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Colorado and Idaho.
