A quick look at the global covid status hows that India has successfully brought its COVID numbers down; but South America remains the worst hit continent – using official WHO numbers. Mongolia is also trending higher – with currently 300 cases per million per day (but based off a low overall population of approximately 4m).
Across the US – the vaccination impact is showing clearly. All states are at very low levels for new covid cases.
Fatalities have still not fully come down in Michigan; West Virginia or Georgia– but should do so very soon based on the current case data
Perhaps the best way to show the solid improvement across the whole US – is a stat I was tracking since early COVID which is the ‘worst counties’ in America list. Today there are only 4 counties on the list. In late December 2020 there were 572
The critiera is population greater than 100,000 and new cases per million greater than 200. Here are the 4 counties.
|State||County||New Cases per million||New Fatalities per million||County Pop|
With numbers this low across the US, travel season is back! Get out there and visit a National Park…. we did just recently and they have never appeared to be more popular
