I've periodically checked out the COVID data on the CDC website. Last week, I put some numbers on a spreadsheet and determined that the odds of contracting the disease vary from less than 1 in 1,000 (Hawaii and Montana) to 19 in 1,000 (New Jersey). I also did some death rate calculations. The lowest was Utah (.008) and the highest was New Jersey (.009) There didn't seem to be a huge pattern for red vs. blue states. But, the bottom 9 states when sorted for death rate (i.e., those with the lowest death rates) were red and the top 6/7 were blue.
Today, I did some number crunching from data found on the CDC website. For a long time, the top of the curve (number of new cases per day) was 4/6/20. The number of cases went from 1,237 on 3/15/20 to 43,438 cases (reported that day) on 4/6/20. That's an increase of 42,201 in 16 days - when the country was completely shut down. We had a similar increase from 6/3/20 to 7/3/20 (30 days) when the cases jumped by 43,042 cases (14,676 on 6/3/20 to ...
