For the following states, the level of fatalities from COVID is too high – and is trending in the wrong direction. Not enough is being done.
Masachusetts has the highest current level of fatalities per million of population per day coming in at 9.8 New cases are also very high at 134 per million of population per day. The fatality rate is stable, week over week, but that’s little consolation when the numbers are so high.
Michigan is also deteriorating. At 5.8 fatalities per million per day – and increasing rapidly, at 54% over the prior week.
Pensylvania, 4.9 fatalities per million, increasing at 8% week over week
Louisiana, 4.4 fatalities per million, increasing at over 40% week over week.
New Hampshire, 4.4 fatalities per million – increasing at about 15% week over week
Indiana 3.6 fatalities per million – increasing at about 6% week over week
See the detailed charts below.
All of these states have a current level of COVID fatality higher than NY when compared equivalently using per million of population statistics. Think about that for a second. NY was the epicenter. Now it is very definitely the case that for current data, 13 other states have a worse fatality level than NY. NY continues to improve.

Hi Julian, When you have time, check out Vermont’s travel restrictions re reentry plan. Restricted to certain counties in Northeast only and only if traveling in personal vehicle. NYC and Boston excluded. South and West excluded. What are your thoughts on this approach? Enjoying your content!! How do I send a link to others if they are not on social media? Best, Lori
