10 States With the Largest Death Totals
Among states, the COVID-19 death and confirmed cases counts are uneven when compared to total populations. Texas and Florida are not among the top 10 states in these deaths despite the fact that they are the second and third states when measured by population.
Connecticut and Louisiana are among the top 10 states in death counts. Their populations put them nowhere near the top in terms of state population.
It is worth noting that among the hardest hit states are Connecticut and New Jersey. Parts of these states are very near hard-hit New York City.
