According to a new study by Wallethub, South Carolina is one of the least-safe states during the COVID-19 pandemic. With only the small percentage of the population having been vaccinated against the virus, it’s no surprise that South Carolina would be low on the list (Wistv).

The study came from a full report of safest states during COVID-19.

Out of all 50 states, South Carolina was ranked number 47 on the list

Wallethub based the ranking on attributes such as COVID-19 transmissions, positive testing, hospitalization/death, and the quantity of the population getting vaccinated. 

South Carolina was ranked 50th in positive testing rate, 47th in vaccination rate, 45th in hospitalization rate, 39th in death rate, and 24th in transmission rate” (Wistv).

According to the study, Alaska was ranked the safest state. Nevada, Mississippi, Alabama, and Arizona were ranked lower than South Carolina.
