The county level data on positivity rates and deaths are not encouraging and continue to trend in the wrong directions.
The county level in North Dakota is concerning, just like we see at the state level. The increases in positivity and deaths are accelerating in some counties.
Looking at counts for deaths avoids some of the questions surrounding the positivity rates. Put bluntly it is more difficult to argue about death.
The large number of deaths in September and October are consistent with the trend in positivity rates in North Dakota.
69% of ND Covid deaths occurred since September 6, which is the last 0 Covid death day in ND.
