And New York at that time was especially hard hit in terms of overwhelmed hospitals and morgues.

I myself left San Francisco with my husband just four months prior to the beginning of the period in question. These numbers don't surprise me.
Miami area lost the most, per capita. 140k. And that was a place that was supposed to be doing well with the pandemic. It's def a immigration thing.
