I do too! I know that info will come eventually.

I've read a few things stating that CA and WA have done the best in terms of response and flattening the curve.

I also use the World-o-meters site tia posted and have posted it on PT before for others. My son introduced me to the site when this was first starting to be a major concern in our area (back in February).

My state has steadily been moving down the list as other states overtake us. We were #1 for far too long. I'm so happy to see us move down the list, but I'm so sad that means so many other states are getting more cases now.

We're now #10 for cases, but #5 for deaths.

The international listing (all countries) is here

I like you first link, tori, thanks for posting! I see on both sites (the one you link and the world-o-meters one), my state has no new cases! Wootwoot!

It's definitely not my state-NJ. We are well over 30,000 confirmed cases. We are also at almost a 1000 deaths. Today we have passed how many people from NJ died in 9-11.

CK2 04-04-2020 01:06 PM

Tori, thank you! I hadnít seen either of the websites you linked. Lots of interesting information there.

Lottalove, thatís a shame.

I live in Missouri. We have the dubious distinction of having the single highest overnight growth in the number of cases nationwide (600%.)

In addition, our Governor was one of the last to put statewide Stay at Home measures in place. It doesn't start til Sunday night at midnight and only goes til April 24.

On top of all that dreary news, it has been said that the peak will hit most states in mid to late April, our anticipated peak is not until May 18th.

So if you are ranking states, MO is probably last...

ETA: This just popped up in my FB feed:

So, if not dead last, we are in the bottom 5....

This is what I've been looking at. It doesn't give per capita COVID-19 cases, though. Even if it did, it wouldn't be a very good indicator of "how well a state is doing" since we have such inadequate testing. Some places that look as though they have lower numbers actually just have a lack of tests available or a backlog of tests that haven't been processed.

I think this information is interesting, though:

ICrazyTeach 04-04-2020 09:20 AM

I don't think any data is legitimate in answering the question. There are uneven rates of testing and uneven requirements for reporting.
Exactly. It's impossible to compare right now.

Our governor is pretty popular with his handling of all this, though.

i've been using this one :

has states and then also countries

seeing the "recovered" number at the top helps me--i wish it had recoveries by state, as well.

CK2 04-04-2020 08:44 AM

I think handling the crisis is different that having fewer cases.
Yes, absolutely! Thatís why I worded my original post that way, asking about both aspects.
PoohBear 04-04-2020 08:43 AM

I think handling the crisis is different than having fewer cases. I think California is being looked at as a state that handled it well. They have lots of cases but they seem to have flattened the curve (which is the goal of all this) by being very proactive

Thank you, annie_g.

This website gives a state by state breakdown. Use the drop down menu.

Wyoming doesn’t have any deaths yet, but they have cases.

Here is one site I check regularly:

Wyoming is second lowest, next to Alaska, in total number of cases. I would be curious to have the numbers already done for me to know the per capita rates. (Same with countries around the world.)

As I said, I’m curious. I have time to search for things online and gain information. I can do my best to discern whether the information is legitimate. The “etc.” in my original post includes information on things like rates of testing.

anna 04-04-2020 08:20 AM

I don't think any data is legitimate in answering the question. There are uneven rates of testing and uneven requirements for reporting. When a vaccine in invented and the pandemic is over the real data will emerge .

mhugs 04-04-2020 08:16 AM

heard WYOMING doesn't have any-yet.

CK2 04-04-2020 08:12 AM

I havenít been able to find current information ranking the states both in terms of per capita COVID cases, etc. and how well they are handling this crisis. Have any of you seen that information?
