The fatality data lags cases, but as you can see Arizona cases have spiked for so long that in the case of Yuma, the fatalities are now growing significantly.

Here’s the full list of all counties with population greater than 100,000 and more than 200 new cases per day, per million of people. In total 141 counties meet those criteria. The list is organized by state for easy reference.

Notice the Flu Ratio column – this shows total fatalities for the county – expressed as a percentage of a typical flu level of deaths. Navajo, Arizona for example has a level of deaths 7 times greater than typical flu levels.
