In the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan area, located in Texas, a total of 1,782,304 COVID-19 cases have been reported to date. Adjusted for population, there have been 24,566 reported infections for every 100,000 people in the area — in line with the national rate of 25,130 cases per 100,000 people.
Though per capita cases of COVID-19 are closely in line with the national per capita infection rate in Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, there are still parts of the metro area where the per capita infection rate is relatively low.
The broader Dallas metro area comprises 13 counties or county equivalents — and of them, Hunt County in Texas has the fewest COVID-19 cases per capita. So far, there have been a total of 15,830 confirmed infections in Hunt County, or 17,178 for every 100,000 people.
Though Hunt County has the lowest per capita infection rate in the Dallas metro area, its per capita fatality rate is disproportionately high.
