Oklahoma has the 12th lowest death rate from Covid-19. Oklahoma has one of the higher testing rates in the USA. About 2 million tests have been recorded on our nearly 4 million people. So our low rate is not coming from our lack of tests to confirm actual illnesses.
Texas, for instance, only tests their public at a rate of half of the Oklahoma testing services.
The real data shows that of the roughly 175,000 confirmed Oklahoma cases, less than 1700 deaths have been attributed to Covid-19. that's lower than 1%, so far. Most Oklahomans believe the actual infection spread is nearly twice the confirmed number. Many residents believe they, or someone they know, had Covid-19 as early as last December.
Vermont continues to lead the nation in low death rates. But who travels to Vermont? The same is true of Alaska & Hawaii. It appears that the places with the most travel activities are among the highest in social spread of Covid-19.
