As coronavirus rampages across America, some states have been much more aggressive than others in addressing the crisis, according to a report from WalletHub, a personal finance website.

In order to determine how aggressive the states have been in taking measures to limit virus exposure, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across three dimensions, evaluating them using 35 relevant metrics, each graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the highest value.

The three dimensions:

  • Prevention and containment – 60 points
  • Risk factors and infrastructure – 20 points
  • Economic impact – 20 points
