Maryland is 3rd Safest State During COVID-19, According to WalletHub Report

With around 65% of the population fully vaccinated against COVID-19 but the omicron variant continuing to spread, WalletHub today released updated rankings for the Safest States During COVID-19.

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.

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

  • 12th – Vaccination Rate
  • 4th – Positive Testing Rate
  • 2nd – Hospitalization Rate
  • 13th – Death Rate
  • 7th – Transmission Rate

Note: Rankings are based on data available as of 12:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, February 23, 2022.

Per the report:

As the U.S. continues its efforts to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic and the surging omicron variant, staying safe is one of Americans’ top concerns. Safety is also essential for getting the economy back on track, as the lower COVID-19 transmission and deaths are in a state, the fewer restrictions there will be and the more confidence people will have to shop in person. While the country has mostly reopened, increasing the percentage of people who have been vaccinated and received booster doses is key to getting back to life as normal. The good news is that around 65% of the population has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as of February 22.

Some states are already safer than others, though, based on how well they have kept the pandemic under control and how much they are vaccinating. 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.
