States ranked by COVID-19 cases: Oct. 28

North Dakota has the most confirmed COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population of all U.S. states, while Vermont has the fewest, according to an analysis by The New York Times.

The Times used data from reports of COVID-19 cases and deaths by U.S. states and counties. 

The database includes cases and deaths that have been identified by public health officials as probable coronavirus patients, which means they did not have confirmed cases but were evaluated using criteria developed by national and local governments. State populations are based on 2019 data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
