Counties in every state with the highest COVID-19 infection rates right now

More than 44,000 new coronavirus cases and 1,000 deaths were reported on Sept. 1 in the United States. That number is close to the week prior’s average of 42,214 daily cases, which was down 13% from two weeks prior. But while countrywide totals are significant, actually tracking the pandemic requires zeroing in on case counts and deaths in a more granular fashion with states and, more specifically, counties.

To determine which counties in every state have the highest COVID-19 infection rates, Stacker consulted the New York Times COVID-19 data repository, which includes case and death values compiled from state and local health agencies. We compared county-level daily new case numbers, averaged over the most recent week of data (Aug. 27 to Sept. 2), to county populations, using population data compiled from the U.S. Census’ 2018 American Community Survey. The top three counties for each state are included here, ranked based on cases per 100,000 people in the past week. Overall data on the numbers of cases and deaths due to COVID-19 in every state are also included.

By seeing where infection rates are highest, elected officials can set better rules regarding reopening businesses and schools—particularly relevant as children return to classrooms for the 2020-2021 school year—while residents can be better informed on how to best protect themselves and have a better understanding of the risk of transmission.

Keep reading to see which counties in your state have the highest COVID-19 infection rates right now.
