COVID-19 in the states


The number of COVID-19 deaths per 100,000 persons in the United States as of June 25, according to Johns Hopkins University. This gave the United States the seventh-highest rate of COVID-19 deaths in the world, with Belgium leading with 85 deaths per 100,000 persons. The United Kingdom had 64 and Spain had 60. (Numbers from other countries, such as China, are unreliable.) In the United States, the Northeastern states increased the U.S. average with New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts all having more than 100 deaths per 100,000 persons. South Dakota, which did not have a mandatory COVID-19 lockdown, had 9 deaths per 100,000 persons.

    The really good news is that weekly Covid-19 deaths are dropping dramatically from 3 months ago. According to the CDC web site weekly deaths due to Covid have steadily dropped from a high of 16,374 mid-April to just hundreds the week ending July 4th. These numbers reflect the whole country and should be a cause of celebration for us. While there seems to be an increase in the numbers of people reported to have the disease (at least in some of the southern states), the threat of death from Covid in the US seems to have vastly decreased. It should be noted that the numbers being reported in the article above are cumulative, covering from the beginning of the illness to the present day, but cumulative is history; what is happening weekly should be giving us encouragement.

    Yes, and I read that the CDC reported that we are close to being below the normal Influenza Like Illness death rate for this time of the year (which Covid-19 would fall into) which means it would no longer be considered an epidemic. I'm skeptical as to whether that will change any of our leaders tactics however.
