An amazing Covid 19 tracker that shows exactly where "safe" lies for each individual state.
The metric being tracked here (Rt) represents the effective reproduction rate of the virus calculated for each locale. It lets us estimate how many secondary infections are likely to occur from a single infection in a specific area. Values over 1.0 mean we should expect more cases in that area, values under 1.0 mean we should expect fewer.Estimating the metric.
If you move your cursor in the individual state graphs you can see how the infection rate has changed. If the authors are correct, currently the safest state in terms of future projections is Conneticut, the least safe, North Dakota.
