© Provided by 24/7 Wall St. More than 1 million Americans have died from COVID-19 - more than the total number of Americans killed in World War I and World War II combined.

In the Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford metropolitan area, located in Florida, a total of 6,664 deaths have been attributed to the virus, equal to 272 fatalities for every 100,000 people. Nationwide, 307 deaths have been attributed to the virus per 100,000 people.

Though deaths attributable to the virus are less common across the metro area than they are nationwide, this is not the case in some parts of the city.

The broader Orlando metro area comprises four counties or county equivalents -- and of them, Lake County has had the most COVID-19 fatalities per capita. So far, the per capita coronavirus death rate in Lake County stands at 455 for every 100,000 people.

Though it has the highest per capita death rate in the Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford metro area, Lake County ranks among the middle 50% of all U.S. counties or county equivalents by COVID-19 death rate per capita.

All COVID-19 data used in this story are current as of June 28, 2022.

These are all the counties in Florida where COVID-19 is slowing (and where it's still getting worse).
