States with the Most Improved Health During COVID-19 – WalletHub Study

With states’ reopening progress dependent on public health, WalletHub today released updated rankings for the States with the Biggest Health Improvements During COVID-19, along with accompanying videos and audio files.  

In order to determine where Americans’ health is recovering or worsening the most from the COVID-19 pandemic, and thus where reopening efforts can accelerate, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 13 key metrics. Those include the COVID-19 death rate, hospitalization rate and the rate at which people test positive. This report focuses on the latest developments in each state rather than which states have been hit the hardest throughout the pandemic. Below, you can see highlights from the report, along with a WalletHub Q&A.
