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 7 day average (the worst containment) are: Minnesota (0.142) with 1.545,001 cases, Montana (0.141) with 283,054 cases, Guam (0.119) with 51,084 cases, West Virginia (0.119) with 528,651 cases, and US Virgin Islands (0.096) with 20,760 cases. Minnesota has been in the top 5 states for 442 of the last 685 days. Montana has been in the top 5 states for 108 of the last 185 days. Guam has been in the top 5 states for 97 of the last 169 days. West Virginia has been in the top 5 states for 199 of the last 290 days.
Several states have stopped posting new case and new death numbers. I will back calculate where possible.
A column on the right shows the previous day growth rate divided by the 7 day moving average. Red highlight states were over 2.0 yesterday. Yellow highlight states were over 1.5 yesterday. This is an early warning of higher growth rate in states. Many of these states did not report the last several days making this measure more variable for those states.
My calculated growth rate for USA is 0.0303 for yesterday, up from previous day of 0.0296. This is not population or case number weighted. Yesterday, 20 states did not report new cases. It appears some states, particularly Wyoming, are deleting active cases from the count much earlier that others. These differences in the states reporting, makes the growth rate comparisons misleading.
Daily active case counts have started to rise in the last couple weeks. There have been 88 of last 143 days with decreasing active case numbers.
There have now been 88 million total cases of Covid-19 in the US. This is 26% 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.
As the table has expanded, it has become harder to read. You may want to copy the image, paste to another screen. like Word, and increase the size.
