The continued spread of the delta variant claims human lives and threatens a return to normal in the USA. To date, 698,905 Americans have died from the virus – more than the total number of Americans killed in World Wars I and II combined.

In Colorado’s Denver-Aurora-Lakewood metropolitan area, a total of 3,785 deaths have been attributed to the virus, the equivalent of 133 deaths for every 100,000 people. Nationwide, 214 deaths per 100,000 people are attributed to the virus.

Although deaths attributable to the virus are less common in the metropolitan area than across the country, some parts of the metropolitan area have more deaths per capita than others.

Greater Denver has 10 counties or county equivalents – and of those, Adams County had the most COVID-19 deaths per capita. To date, the coronavirus death rate per capita in Adams County is 162 per 100,000 people.

Although it has the highest per capita death rate in the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood area, Adams County is in the middle 50% of all U.S. counties or county equivalents by COVID-19 per capita death rate.
