How is this extrapolation calculated?
(7-day average cases in a state x population of the US)/100,000.
What does this tell us?
This show us how bad/good we would be doing as a country if the whole country was doing as well as selected state. For example, if the entire US was doing as badly as North Dakota on per capita basis - we'd be reporting 347,000 new cases every day. This is a new dashboard that is based on per capita 7 day avg in each state. And, we extrapolate to the entire US.
