Many thanks for doing the work of taking a look at this and challenging it.

And, just for entertainment, since no numbers can be substantiated or compared: Do a log-log plot of the Maryland county by county confirmed cases vs the county’s population.

You will see that the most highly populated counties (and cities) have the lowest numbers of confirmed cases per 10,000 population.

Issue: Should that be per 100/1000/10,000/100,000 population?

I set a list of Maryland counties ordered by size (US Census data) against cases (Maryland Dept Health).
The smaller counties trended at 280 cases per hundred thousand county population, shown here: small Maryland counties
and big county populations shown here: large Maryland counties
The more populous counties trended at 540 cases per hundred thousand county population.

Accordingly, I was unable to confirm your correlation, because I found the highest populated counties showed the highest case rates. Comments?
