Which Pa. counties have most coronavirus deaths per 100,000 residents? Where does Dauphin rank?

Posted

It's no surprise that Philadelphia County, as the state's largest, has the highest number of coronavirus deaths.

But what if the figure is adjusted to deaths per 100,000 residents? Are the largest counties still near the top? 

This chart reorders the numbers with that metric.

Where do Dauphin, Lancaster, Cumberland, York and Lebanon counties rank? See below.

Remember that only 54 of the state's 67 counties have reported deaths from the coronavirus. The chart uses figures from Saturday, May 23.
