Since May, counties that voted overwhelmingly for Trump tallied nearly triple the death rate of blue state counterparts - due to COVID "misinformation".


COVID-related American death data shows dramatic differences between Republican and Democratic counties, with the reddest tenth of the nation in October chalking up a death rate six times higher than that of the bluest tenth, NPR reported.

NPR’s analysis found that since May, when COVID-19 vaccines became widely available, counties that voted in 2020 for Donald Trump by 60% or more have suffered nearly triple the rate of COVID-related deaths, compared with counties that voted for Joe Biden by the same margin.

In Feb. 2021 CoViD was the disease causing the most deaths in the US. 

On average for the year it is third on the table. Health System Tracker.
