Trying a different breakout of the COVID data to look the overall positives situation.
The state had a data system issue yesterday so this is an update for the last two days. The day off did not make the outcomes any better.
Positivity rates and total deaths in the selected counties continue to increase and show some surprising movements in the rates.
I update the numbers and discuss a few points made here before but the governor also made in his remarks today. I start discussing the economic fallout, but that is going to be a long and ongoing discussion.
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.
