This Is How Many People Have Died From COVID-19 in Each State
by Samuel Stebbins, Wall Street 24/7, February 27, 2022 (excerpt)
Since the first death attributable to COVID-19 was reported in the United States on Feb. 29, 2020, an estimated 928,350 Americans have died — and that number continues to grow every day.
Adjusting for population, no state has reported more coronavirus deaths than Mississippi. Since the pandemic began, Mississippi has reported a total of 11,836 deaths — or 396 for every 100,000 people. Per capita deaths attributable to the virus are also high in Arizona, New Jersey, Alabama, and Tennessee. In each of these places, the death rate stands at at least 354 per 100,000 people.
For context, the national COVID-19 death rate stands at 284 deaths for every 100,000 people.
To date, Vermont has reported the fewest coronavirus deaths on a per capita basis. There have been an estimated 88 COVID-19 deaths across the state for every 100,000 people since the pandemic began.
Though it is not always the case, states with higher than average COVID-19 deaths per capita are often also home to larger high-risk populations. One such group is retirement-age Americans, who are at least 90 times more likely to die from the virus if infected than those in the 18 to 29 age group. Nationwide, 16.5% of the population fall into that age group.
