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

COVID-19 Icon

As of today, more than 50% of all U.S. adults are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, which is a fantastic milestone to have reached this quickly.

HOWEVER...over 23,000 Americans are still testing positive for COVID-19 every day, and over 450 are dying of it every day.


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 8 residents of Iowa.

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

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

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 in spring 2020)...but as you can see, several other states have mostly caught up to them on this front.

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, Michigan, New Mexico, Illinois, North Dakota, Arkansas, Georgia, South Carolina, Iowa, Tennessee, Nevada, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Florida and Delaware.

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