Arizona had the highest case rate in January, with 3,273 positive cases per 100,000 residents. For comparison, it also led the nation in cases last July, when the state had 1,303 positive cases per 100,000 residents.
But there’s good news, too. New case rates are trending down nationwide, and more Americans have taken one or more doses of the vaccine than have contacted the virus over the entire course of the pandemic. In late January, President Joe Biden set a goal of reaching 1.5 million vaccinations a day. Since Inauguration Day, the US has averaged 1.3 million shots daily.
