I am adding to the data discussion on positivity rates. Deaths are another variable tracked related to Covid-19. The height of the bar represents the death count for that day. The death total for ND as of this data release was 531, with a clear increase of late. The fact is there has not been a zero death day from COVID in ND since September 6. Since then there were 368 of the ND COVID deaths, or 69% of the total ND COVID deaths.
This large percentage of deaths in the last 2 months is perhaps the best indicator that the COVID situation did not go away and combined with the positivity data shows that it is a situation still requiring attention.
