The large number of deaths in September and October are consistent with the trend in positivity rates in North Dakota.
Ward county is at nearly 25% positivity in the 14 day centered moving average. I added both Ward and Williams counties to my series of county graphs.
The pandemic data continue to show momentum up in positivity rates for North Dakota.
69% of ND Covid deaths occurred since September 6, which is the last 0 Covid death day in ND.
Updated the county data with the new data release. Cass is above 13% and we are seeing highs that rival the early, low test positivity rates.
