These 24 States Have Uncontrolled Coronavirus Outbreaks, Study Says

ETNT Health Logo By Alek Korab of ETNT Health | Slide 1 of 26: A shocking new report estimates that 24 states have an uncontrolled COVID-19 spread, right as the country considers reopening. "While we are confident that some states have controlled transmission, we are similarly confident that many states have not," the researchers, from Imperial College of London, wrote. They based their data on the number of people that might get infected by a single patient who has coronavirus. "Most states in the Midwest and the South have rates of transmission that suggest the epidemic is not yet under control." (They note that their study has not yet been peer-reviewed.) Here are the 24 states that still haven't contained their coronavirus outbreaks, according to researchers.
