New Covid Deaths Per Million - 2021-08-18

The above chart was produced from a data download from Worldometers. I used data from yesterday to make sure I got a full day.

Once again, the typical suspect states lead the nation in population-adjusted Covid deaths.

Daily deaths are subject to reporting errors especially on weekends. 7-day totals are a better measure.

7-day Death Rates Per 100,000

Once again we see the same general set of problematic states.

That chart is from Covid Deaths Per 100K Last 7 Days.

Louisiana leads the nation with 8.6 followed by Arkansas at 6 and Nevada at 3.9.

What About Florida?

Good question. For all the discussion regarding Florida being a massive hotbed of Covid activity, it doesn't appear to be.

Recent deaths per million in Florida is only 1.96. Florida deaths per 100,000 in the last 7 days is only 1.1. 


Although Florida is not in the top tier of vaccination states, it does have a fully vaccination rate 51%. That's higher than 30 other states including Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio. 

If you want to credit someone in Florida, credit those getting vaccinated, not the governor.
