Sometime today or tomorrow, the US will pass the 200k death mark for COVID since this began earlier this year. Yesterday, I noticed that SC had more deaths than NC despite being less than half the size. So I did some research.
I looked at cases per 100k residents and deaths per 100k residents so that everything is adjusted for population size.

NC has 1771 cases per 100k residents and 29 deaths per 100k residents.

Virginia has 1587 cases per 100k residents and 33 deaths per 100k residents.
Georgia has 2782 cases per 100k residents and 60 deaths per 100k residents.

Florida has 3100 cases per 100k residents and 59 deaths per 100k residents.

Alabama has 2844 cases per 100k residents and 48 deaths per 100 residents.
Finally, SC has 2577 cases per 100k residents & 60 deaths per 100k residents

NC is at 1771 and 29

Every state that took the reopen quickly path has paid a great price in death of its residents. Death rates 2x ours here in NC

I hope NC will continue on a safe and scientifc path
And for those like our LG that think this isn't worse than the flu, here is the periodic reminder that while you continue to have large rallies inside, no matter what you say, COVID is more deadly than the flu.
