Yesterday I wrote a piece called... It's all fun and games until a family member gets COVID-19. Today this study felt like a breath of fresh air. Wallethub is reporting that Idaho is the state with the 5th biggest health improvements during COVID-19. This is how they went about making their determination:

"WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 11 key metrics that reflect the COVID-19 death rate, as well as the rates at which people test positive and the virus spreads. "

Idaho's Health During Coronavirus (1=Most Improved; 25=Avg.):

  • 4th – Death Rate This Week
  • 15th – Positive COVID-19 Testing Rate This Week
  • 5th – COVID-19 Current Estimated Transmission Number*

*Estimates the average number of people to whom an infected person will transmit COVID-19.

Top 5 is good news  for us but we should congratulate Hawaii who is holding the number one spot. On the other hand Arizona has seen the smallest improvement in recent weeks and is last on the list.
