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.
Bottom 20 Vaccination Rates
Vaccination Rates Top 20 States
States With Vaccination Rates Under 40%
- Alabama: 36.1%
- Mississippi: 36.6%
- Wyoming: 37.8%
- Idaho: 38.3%
- Arkansas: 39.4%
- Louisiana: 39.4%
- West Virginia: 39.4%
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.
