Michigan has the worst COVID-19 infection rate of any state in the country


(WXYZ) – Michigan had the worst COVID-19 infection rate of any state in the country in the past 7 days, according to information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
According to data from their COVID tracker, Michigan had 361.5 cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 people. This puts Michigan at the top of the country, grouped only with New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

New Jersey had the second highest COVID-19 rate at 351.7 per 100,000 population. New York and Connecticut were both less than 300 per 100,000 population.

However, Michigan’s COVID-19 infection rate tracks that of New York City, which the CDC does not calculate as part of New York State. NYC over the past 7 days had a COVID-19 rate of 366.5 per 100,000 people.
