The Navajo Nation, an indigenous territory that spans three states in the western United States, has crossed both New York and New Jersey, reaching the highest population-to-population ratio in the country with coronavirus infections.
And those lands recorded 4002 cases of the disease yesterday, Sunday, which made Navajo Nation record 2304 cases per 100,000 people.
By comparison, infection rates in New York and New Jersey are 1806 and 1669 per 100,000 people, according to Johns Hopkins University.
In total, 140 people died in those lands where more than 170,000 people died as a result of Covid 19, according to Navajo Nation.
Navajo Nation strongly sought to slow the spread of the virus with a 57-hour curfew imposed at the weekend, to force all residents to stay at home and forced all companies to close.
That region has long suffered from widespread poverty and diseases such as diabetes, beyond the national average.
It is noteworthy that this region, which covers a large area of land through Arizona, Utah and New Mexico, is the largest region controlled by Native Americans in the United States.
