1. The entire state of Missouri is above 30% now.

I'm happy to see that mayor trying to do something helpful, though.

States above 20% infection rate per Johns Hopkins:
SD - 58.8%
KS - 58.7%
IA - 52.6%
WY - 43.4%
ID - 39.4%
MO - 30.8%
AL - 24.2%
PA - 20.8%

Pennsylvania is bad, but they test so few people that their "infections per 100,000 people" keeps low. They're testing less than 1/3 the percentage of people compared to nearby MI and OH, for example, and it's been that way in PA for months! (Their death numbers tell a different story.)
