Harvard Data Shows How Dangerously Spread Coronavirus in the US IS


The Coronavirus in the US took only months to spread to each crack and crevice of the nation, over time however the regions where the virus is most commonly found are changing and evolving with the passage of tie as Brown and Harvard Universities reveal with their animations.

In March and April, the outbreaks grasped the East Coast first and then shifted gradually to the Sunbelt and then appeared to spread to most of the nation in the summer.

The Brown and Harvard map shows that a major part of the country in the red risk zones of coronavirus transmissions, the regions most in danger are situated in the Midwest and the Rocky Mountain regions.

The red tipping point of the map is South and North Dakota, Utah, Montana, Wisconsin, Idaho, Wyoming, Iowa, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Oklahoma.

This tipping point is defined as a 7 day average period with more than 25 cases every 100,000 individuals.

Although North Dakota has the smallest population state-wise in the country it still has the most number of coronavirus cases every hundred thousand people according to the analysis of both Brown and Harvard.

Each day 63 out of every hundred thousand people in the state are being infected by the coronavirus daily. Yesterday however the health department of the state revealed 475 latest coronavirus cases.

Wyoming is also one of the least populated states of the nation and yet it makes it to the list of the most in danger with the rapid transmission of coronavirus. It is interesting to note that there are more cows than people in Wyoming and yet the rate in the latest daily cases per 100,000 people in the area is 4 times more than the recorded rate in the state of California which happens to be the most populated state of the US.

27 latest cases every 100,000 people are seen on average in the state of Wyoming, the recent numbers are setting new records and not for good reasons.

It is important to notice that these worst-hit states are also the ones that took the least aggressive and specifically directive measures to combat the lethal virus when the pandemic was still starting, most didn’t even follow mask-wearing orders or stayed at home.

But according to Harvard and Brown University, health experts globally believe that strict draconian measures are actually beneficial and bringing states back to the ledge of safety and save them from imminent disaster and deaths.

Other 35 states are also seen to head in disasters way according to the data, they are apparently in the orange which means they are fast approaching 10-24 cases per 100,000 individuals per day and require either reinstating stay-at-home orders or working on tracing and testing techniques and possibly incorporating the two in some way.

In Michigan however, it is found that above 1000 coronavirus cases are seen each day despite it being in the orange category.

Therefore it is only a matter of safety to follow safety guidelines because otherwise, the maps show exactly how far the destruction brought by the coronavirus in the US will go.
