COVID Death Rates in the United States by Race; COVID Testing, Cases, and Deaths by State
This edition of our 5 Slide Series is our 20th special edition focusing on the COVID-19 pandemic. As with all prior editions, we have tabulated several highly current data points. The newest type of analysis involves quantifying differences in COVID death rates per capita by race, showing that through June 7, African Americans have experienced more than twice the COVID-19 per capita death rate as Whites, Latinos, and Asians. We also provide various statistics regarding new confirmed cases and tests, nationally and state-by-state – including state rankings on the degree to which new confirmed cases have emerged in the past week.
