Weekly and Monthly Progression of Deaths Attributed to COVID-19
This edition presents the weekly progression of COVID deaths in the USA across the 23 weeks since the first death was reported. The week ending on August 1 was our seventh-worst week in terms of COVID deaths, and the fourth consecutive week where more deaths occurred than the previous week.
We also tabulated state-by-state deaths in each of the past five months. The states are fairly evenly divided in terms of what their “highest death” month has been between three months: April, May, and July. No state experienced their highest level of COVID deaths in either March or June.
