We use CDC data to early September as integrated by the New York Times in a September 23rd article. The Excess Deaths are those in excess of those of the last few years, which count the full casualties of the disruptions of the barely contained US Coronavirus pandemic. For various states, the data are from March 15 to September 5, or 12.
For the US as a whole, until September 5, the 200,000 Coronavirus Confirmed Deaths were just a part of the 267,000 Excess Deaths, which were 33% greater.
We show in the table the State and our calculation of the ratio of Excess Deaths in previous years to the Confirmed Coronavirus Cases. We include the four largest states and some other key states.
