Covid-19 cases are rising by more than 10% in 14 states this week compared to last week, with half of those states rising by more than 20%.
While nationally the number of new cases has continued to decline – though at a much slower rate over the past three weeks compared to late January and February – the trend is not down for all states.
One month ago, on Feb. 17, there were only 3 states showing increases of 10% or more (North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska).
Michigan cases are increasing the fastest, at more than 50% this week compared to last, with Delaware (39%), Montana (34%), Alabama (31%) and West Virginia (29%) in the Top 5.
The 14 states increasing by more than 10% are:
- West Virginia
- New Hampshire
- North Dakota
