There have been 82,117,600 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States to date – and that number continues to grow.
In the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan area, located in Texas, a total of 1,781,485 cases of COVID-19 have been reported. Adjusted for population, there have been 24,555 confirmed infections for every 100,000 people in the area — in line with the national rate of 25,100 cases per 100,000 people.
Even though COVID-19 infections per capita are in line with the national average across Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington , there are parts of the metro area where this is not the case.
The broader Dallas metro area comprises 13 counties or county equivalents, which can include independent cities — and of them, Kaufman County has the most COVID-19 cases per capita. So far, there have been a total of 35,728 confirmed infections in Kaufman County, or 30,046 for every 100,000 people.
Not only does Kaufman County have the most COVID-19 infections per capita in the Dallas area, it also has more deaths attributable to the virus per capita than the metro area as a whole.
