We have discontinued our daily collection and analysis of state and county reported data related to the Covid-19 coronavirus. This information is still available from state and local health agencies, national and local media, and the CDC. This change will allow us more time to do what we do best: assisting our clients in solving complex problems with actionable insights that lead to growth. We will periodically present new Coronavirus briefs and reports that further validate scientific findings or when we discover new insights that require further exploration through advanced analytics.
The following appendixes supplement the COVID-19 information displayed in the June 7, 2020 Brief.
Cases per 100,000 Medicare Population
As noted by the CDC, the Medicare population in the U.S. is part of a group that is at high risk for severe cases of COVID-19 should they contract the disease. These individuals, all age 65 and older, often have chronic diseases and compromised immune systems that add to the severity of their COVID-19 cases. The following table lists the number of Medicare recipients diagnosed with the coronavirus. In order to compare results between states, the ratio of cases per 100,000 Medicare population in each state and the District of Columbia is also listed.
