COVID-19 Death Rate More than 4X Higher in Least Vaccinated States Than in Most Vaccinated

Less vaccinated states tend to have higher hospitalization rates, too

The average rate of COVID-19 deaths in the 10 least vaccinated states was more than four times higher over the past week than the rate in the 10 most vaccinated states, according to a CNN analysis.

In the least vaccinated states, roughly eight people out of every 100,000 residents died of COVID-19 over the past week, compared with only about two out of every 100,000 people in the 10 most vaccinated states.

CNN used data from Johns Hopkins University and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the analysis.
