States that are Recovering the Quickest from COVID-19
Wallet Hub, May 4, 2021
The U.S. is slowly but surely recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, and more and more businesses are reopening as restrictions are gradually eased. As a result, the unemployment rate has dropped to 6% from its high of 14.7% in April 2020.
The country’s progress toward economic recovery has been largely possible because of the strides it has made toward a public health recovery, due to the distribution of vaccines. As of May 3, around 32% of the population has been fully vaccinated, and as that number grows, we should see a significant decline in new COVID-19 cases and deaths. This will also lead to increased consumer confidence.
Even though the U.S. is making progress as a whole, some states are recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic much faster than others. In order to determine the states that are having the most successful recoveries, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 22 key metrics.
