WalletHub study shows Maryland is the 6th Safest State During COVID-19

Information via WalletHub:

With around 51% of the population fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and vaccination being essential for getting the economy back on track, WalletHub today released updated rankings for the Safest States During COVID-19, along with accompanying videos and audio files.

In order to find out the safest states during the COVID-19 pandemic, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across five key metrics. Our data set includes the rates of COVID-19 transmission, positive testing, hospitalizations and death, as well as the share of the eligible population getting vaccinated. Below, you can see highlights from the report:

Maryland’s Safety During Coronavirus (1=Best; 25=Avg.):

  • 11th – Vaccination Rate
  • 11th – Positive Testing Rate
  • 13th – Hospitalization Rate
  • 14th – Death Rate
  • 3rd – Transmission Rate

Note: Rankings are based on data available as of 12:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, August 18, 2021.


The 5 states ranking higher than Maryland are:

  1. Vermont
  2. Connecticut
  3. Massachusetts
  4. Maine
  5. Rhode Island

Some other interesting rankings for my family that reads the blog:
