Here's where COVID-19 is the most widespread in Hennepin County

Hennepin County has released a city-by-city comparison showing rising rates of the virus.

As COVID-19 continues to escalate across Minnesota, Hennepin County has released new data showing the levels of virus transmission in the state's most populous region.

Hennepin County has released a table showing the growing rate of COVID-19 across its cities between Sept. 22 and Nov. 9.

The highest 14-day rate of cases as of that date was in Rogers, on the northwestern outskirts of the county, with 169.8 cases per 10,000 people. The lowest was in Eden Prairie, which had 56.5 cases per 10,000 people.

County-wide, the COVID-19 rate has gone from 23.7 cases per 10,000 at the week ending Oct. 5 to 98.7 cases per 10,000 as of Nov. 9. 

This included a massive jump between Nov. 2 and Nov. 9, when the average cases rose from 58.2 to 98.7.

The county's biggest city, Minneapolis, is below the county-wide average with a rate of 92.6 cases per 10,000 over the most recent 14-day period.

The case rate in each city is likely to be even higher now, with Minnesota having seen continued exponential growth in cases since Nov. 9.
