Black Hawk County has become a hot spot in the U.S. for COVID-19 cases. As of the writing of this blog, we have 1326 in the county according to the Black Hawk County Health Department. The population in the county 131,228 (U.S. Census Bureau).

How does that stack up to other states in the country? Sadly, we have more than the following U.S. States:

  • Alaska (345 cases)
  • Montana (451 cases)
  • Wyoming (520 cases)
  • Hawaii (607 cases)
  • Vermont (855 cases)
  • North Dakota (942 cases)
  • Maine (1040 cases)
  • West Virginia (1077 cases)

These numbers come from the CDC's website and were updated on April 28th. Black Hawk County's numbers were updated at noon on April 29th and show 20 fewer cases than the number reported 24 hours earlier. Local health officials said some negative tests were erroneously included in the previous report.
