Six US states reported an average of less than one Covid-19 death per day over the past week, according to data from Johns Hopkins University
The states are:
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
New Covid-19 case rates, however, vary widely among these states. Vermont and Hawaii reported about five new Covid-19 cases per 100,000 people per day over the past week, among the lowest in the country. But Rhode Island and Wyoming both reported more than double that, among the highest in the country.
Overall, there were an average of 546 Covid-19 deaths reported per day in the United States over the past seven days, JHU data shows.
This seven-day average is one of the 30 lowest for the US since the pandemic began and one of the 10 lowest in the past year.
