Best reference to Trump in a headline ever.
He refuses to leave the job he simultaneously refuses to do. He’s never been a real president, he just likes to play one on TV.Just quit on us, or would he have skipped it regardless?
Leaders from Germany, France, South Korea, and Argentina were scheduled for an event on the coronavirus pandemic, but Trump was noticeably absent.www.businessinsider.com
My guess is that nearly everyone in the Dakotas either has it or has gotten over it. (Or died from it)
It's not like we're talking about densely populated states here. There may be like 30% of the state's residents after COVID is done with them.
ND has a population of 800,000.
ND has about 73k confirmed cases, total. Approx 846 deaths.
Most of the cases have been since August. And most of that number has just been this month.
So, really in the last 2-3 months, 10% of ND's population contracted COVID.
South Dakota is almost identical, except they have almost 100k more people living there. So, probably closer to 9-9.5% of their population caught it.
Compare them to Florida, who is about to start their third wave, has 21.5 Million people living there (ignoring millions of tourists), and has had a total of about 940k cases... That's about 4.4% of the population.
I'm not sure if mask mandates (not for the state, but for most of the major cities) has helped. And, at least at the beginning, our governor did a partial closure of the state.
I know that's confirmed cases. You know how I know that? I said that.
All of the other estimates about under counting aren't overly helpful, since they are anywhere from double to 4-5 times higher..
