Counties with the highest COVID-19 death rate in Arkansas

As has been true throughout America’s COVID-19 history, every state—and every county therein—has its own COVID-19 story, driven by local policies and behaviors. The United States as of Oct. 20 had reached728,671 COVID-19-related deaths and 45.1 million COVID-19 cases, according to Johns Hopkins University. As of Feb. 2, more Americans had been vaccinated for COVID-19 than had been infected, and though breakthrough infections are continuing to be studied by the CDC and other health organizations, vaccines have reduced the rate of hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19.

Stacker compiled a list of the counties with highest COVID-19 death rates in Arkansas using data from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Counties are ranked by the highest death rate per 100k residents as of Oct. 19, 2021. Keep reading to see whether your county ranks among the highest COVID-19 death rates in your state.
