7 day moving average.

As for the 5 states: Minnesota and its 4 U.S. neighbors, how we rank:
#2 Minnesota, +67% over 14 days [1]
#4 NoDak
#7 Wisconsin
#15 SoDak
#17 Iowa

[1] 7 day average compared to the 7 day average 14 days preceding

U.S. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/us/covid-cases.html
(See the county-level colorized map of the U.S., and the table of states below that. The U.S. overall unfortunately is on a definite uptrend again, +14% 7 day average compared to the 7 day average 14 days preceding.)

COVID In MN: State Crosses 9K Deaths As Positivity Rate Eclipses High Risk Threshold, WCCO (CBS), TUESDAY 11/16/21
https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2021/11/16/covid-in-mn-9k-total-deaths-positivity-rate-high-risk/

Cases: 10,913, Deaths:+51 (Progree comment: Tuesday's cases are typically a 3 day total, Friday until Monday 4am, so is 3,638/day, less than the 7 day running average of 3,950 not including Tuesday's report but including last Tuesday's 7,165 cases which was lower than what it really was because of a backlog of cases)

7 day positivity: 10.3% -- first time this year it's been over the critical 10% threshold

HOSPITAL: ICU: 307, non-ICU: 1,041, Total: 1,348 (also a high for 2021)

Overall, looking at the new cases graph in the NY Times Minnesota link, this state is on fire, with new cases far exceeding all waves except last year's Nov-Dec one, but climbing just as rapidly as last November. But vaccinations help a lot with severe illness, this from the minnsota.cbslocal.com link above:

Minnesotaís rate of deaths for every 100,000 people who arenít fully vaccinated is more than 11 times higher than the rate among the vaccinated group. Itís more than 15 times higher for hospitalizations.
