The state COVID data system was down yesterday so I was not able to update graphs so we have a bit of a gap but not much really. It would be nice to report a dramatic reversal, but no such luck.
The overall state positivity rate continues to increase up with the 7 day centered MA approaching the 17.5% level, and recent observations make it likely to continue the increase.
ND still leads in testing per capita but that is not helping as the positives continue to increase at an even faster pace than testing. We are now at more than 7.5% of the state testing positive at this point. The concerns about overloading the health capacity of the state is real and comes at a time when the entire country experiences the same means we have little in the way of options right now.
