My raw information is from Worldometer. Any errors or misrepresentations are my own.
These tables show all available US states and territories and the COVID-19 data for the last 5 days. I have sorted the states alphabetically and added growth rates for last several days for all states with ranking of each day. Of course, this information changes daily. I have presented the table in two parts because of the screen shot, but it is actually one table in Excel.
Again, results change daily.
For your information, the top 5 states or territories yesterday in growth rate (the worst containment) are: Wyoming (0.179) with 58,527 cases, New Hampshire (0.139) with 96,134 cases, North Dakota (0.138) with 108,218 cases, Minnesota (0.128) with 584,227 cases, and Montana (0.124) with 109,588 cases. Wyoming has been in top 5 list for 113 of last 228 days. New Hampshire has been in top 5 list for 193 of last 308 days. North Dakota has been in top 5 list for 196 of last 308 days. Minnesota has been in top 5 list for 201 of last 274 days. Montana has been in top 5 list for 63 of last 128 days.
Hawaii, Louisiana, Maine, Nebraska, and South Carolina did not report active cases. Several states have stopped posting new case and new death numbers. I will back calculate where possible.
A column on the right shows the current growth rate divided by the 5 day moving average. New Mexico, Tennessee, and Navajo Nation were over 2.0 yesterday (red highlight). Alabama, Michigan, North Carolina, and Veterans Affairs were over 1.5 yesterday (yellow highlight). This is an early warning of higher growth rate in states. Many states now do not report every day making this measure more variable for those states.
My calculated growth rate for USA is 0.00714 for yesterday, up from previous day of 0.00687. This is not population or case number weighted.
Daily active case counts have a notable decline over the last couple months. The number of active cases have dropped about 25% since the peak. This decrease in active case numbers had not been seen since I started recording information in February 2020.
