I give an update for the positivity data and then look at this as a percentage of the total population.
I changed the calculation slightly (to a 15 day moving average) so that it is a bit more sensible. I also provide the data broken out by larger counties. The overall picture here is not good, and Governor Burgum said it was the state’s worst statistical day.
Anyone needing a different county should send me a message telling me that.
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.
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.
