The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many lives and livelihoods all over the world. We have looked at some infection and death rates statistics based on population globally, in the US, and in the Midwest. Unfortunately, as of December 21, 2021, all states in the Midwest region had higher infection rate than the US as a whole. The death rate, fortunately, in many states in the Midwest was lower than the US death rate as a whole. We have identified some research questions (and of course there are many more) that IS/T colleagues in the Midwest and elsewhere can pursue.
