More statistics on US states and COVID-19 growth rates. 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 30 day average (the worst containment) are: Guam (0.208) with 61,061 cases, US Virgin Islands (0.114) with 24,824 cases, Montana (0.104) with 329,977 cases, Arkansas (0.082) with 1,007,474 cases, and New York (0.080) with 6,973,927 cases. Guam has been in the top 5 states for 143 of the last 144 days. US Virgin Islands has been in the top 5 states for 239 of the last 267 days. Montana has been in the top 5 states for 339 of the last 451 days. Arkansas has been in the top 5 states for 24 of the last 24 days. New York has been in the top states for 117 of the last 162 days.
Several states have stopped posting new case and new death numbers. I will back calculate where possible.
My calculated growth rate for USA is 0.00672 for yesterday, down from previous day of 0.00903. This is not population or case number weighted. Yesterday, 43 states did not report new cases.
Daily active case counts have been falling the last several weeks. There have been 256 of last 409 days with decreasing active case numbers.
There have now been 105 million total cases of Covid-19 in the US. This is 31% of the total US population. Reinfections and under reporting will distort the total number of cases.
With new home tests widely available, new case counts are likely under counting the true number of active cases.
