INDIANA (WOWO): A new nationwide study says you might want to avoid Indiana if you’re worried about COVID-19.

Financial website Wallethub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across five key metrics, including COVID-19 transmission rates, hospitalizations, and the share of eligible people actually getting vaccinated, and found Indiana to be the 9th “least safe” state in the country, ranking them 43rd.

The Hoosier State came in 39th in vaccinations, 45th in deaths, and 33rd in hospitalizations. Ohio was ranked 32nd. Vermont was named the “safest,” and Idaho came in last.

  1. If we are 45th in deaths, that means only 5 states have less deaths than Indiana. And if we are 33rd in hospitalizations, that means 17 states have fewer than Indiana. Sounds like a pretty good place to be. Just because we have a lower number of vaccinations does not make us unsafe.

  2. LOL. Okay. Whatever. Wallethub consistently ranks us near the bottom in about everything. Considering who uses that site, I say it is probably a very good thing for Indiana.
