Total US infections: 11,715,316*
Average last 7 days: 165,029/day (new record high = 1 out of every 2000 Americans infected per day!)
Just how ghastly is the situation in the northern Great Plains and Mountain States? So bad that if North Dakota were a country, it would be “leading” the world in infections and new deaths per capita, and rapidly approaching “leading” the world in total deaths per capita.
Here are the “top 10” US States for total confirmed infections (plus New York for comparison purposes):
Almost 9% of the entire population of North Dakota has had a *confirmed* infection. In about another week, that should be over 10% (and probably is already including infections that have not been confirmed).
