STATES RANKED BY COVID-19 DEATHS

As of March 24, more than 543,000 people in the U.S. have died after contracting COVID-19, according to The New York Times.

The Times used data from reports of coronavirus cases and deaths by U.S. states and counties. The database includes cases and deaths that have been identified by public health officials as probable coronavirus patients, which means they did not have confirmed tests for coronavirus infection but were evaluated using criteria developed by national and local governments. Read more about the data here. State population data is from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Here is a breakdown of COVID-19 deaths per 100,000 people in all 50 U.S. states and Washington, D.C. The data was last updated at 6:58 a.m. CDT.
