These States Have the Highest COVID-19 Infection Rates

COVID-19 was the leading cause of death in the U.S. in the week ending Dec. 5, according to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. Still, cases continue to rise across the nation, culminating in a record 225,000 new cases on Dec. 4. The surging caseload first drew attention in the Midwest, but all states are now beginning to see the impact of the Thanksgiving holiday and cooler weather throughout most of the country, which inevitably coincides with more time spent indoors where the virus is more likely to spread.

To determine the states with the highest rates of reported COVID-19 infection, Stacker compared case numbers from the COVID Tracking Project with population data from the U.S. Census (American Community Survey 2018 5-year estimates). The COVID Tracking Project, a volunteer effort housed at The Atlantic, compiles and standardizes data from state public health agencies. Data are current as of Dec. 6 and reflect the past month's worth of new cases. States are ranked according to their reported cases per 100,000 people in the past week.

Various metrics underscore the severity of the COVID-19 crisis, with the Midwest, West, Northeast, and Northwest all setting caseload records throughout October and November. Isolating any region as "safe" is all but impossible amid the spread, as swaths of the country consider shutting down again or exercising precautions to prevent repeats of spring behavior.
