Over the past week, there have been an average of 32.5 confirmed new daily cases of the virus per 100,000 Americans, up from an average of 31.0 new daily cases per 100,000 the week before.
Nationwide, the average number of new daily infections has increased in 22 states in the past week.
The current statewide rise in cases is being driven disproportionately by Wyoming and Colorado, the two states where the average number of new daily cases per capita is rising the fastest.
To date, Rhode Island has had the highest number of COVID-19 cases per capita of any state, at 35,824 per 100,000 people. Nationwide, there were a total of 25,940 cases per 100,000 people.
All COVID-19 data used in this story is current as of June 16, 2022. It’s important to note that in some states, weekly infection rates may include cases of the virus that have occurred earlier but were not previously counted. In addition, North Carolina was excluded from the analysis due to missing data.
