Global Covid round up 6–11–21. Get your US travel on!!
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.
Mesa County, Colorado — 363 cases per million per day
Greene County, Missouri — 222
Webb County, Texas — 1294
Bell County, Texas — 864
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
