If it was all due to population, then why is California doing relatively well? And wtf is up with Vermont? There is not even a real city there.

Idaho is also higher than I'd expect.

Vermont has a lot of old people. And only 38 deaths so far.

Many of the deaths in Vermont so far have occurred at nursing homes and senior living facilities.

Vermont has a very small population. So 38 deaths per 623,989 population are equivalent to 60.9 per million. That is a higher rate than our two most populous states (California and Texas).

It's all the old people. Old people die easier.

If those are such important factors, how do we explain this?

New York City, pop. 8,400,000 — 10,000 deaths

Hong Kong, pop. 7,451,000 — 4 deaths

Hong Kong pulled the plug early, shut down travel, and allocated the public health resources to properly quarantine anyone who was exposed. Privatized medicine works as advertised. Affluent people with gold plated insurance didn’t die. Medicaid patients in nursing homes and poor people in poor health on Medicaid died. The irony is the median age of Fox News watchers is 67. Socialized medicine recipients who are more likely to die from COVID-19.

Vermont has ski resorts and colleges stuffed full of New Yorkers and Bostonians. It got to Vermont before the ski resorts and colleges pulled the plug. They infected the locals. The locals spread it to grandma and grandpa.

Vermont has no cities so it’s not a high transmission rate place as long as the colleges and ski resorts are shut.

Probably a bit unnecessary to post the list again just 3-4 post later. If you look at states ranked by population density the top 10 of that list and the top 10 of your list has strong correlation too

We will see how this goes.

I’m in Tennessee and the governor is lifting the stay at home order at the end of the month. Locally, there are 31 active cases in the eight county local NBC viewing market.
