Faux Hysteria Over South Dakota (Again) September 13, 2020

Posted by geoff in News.

The press is starting to dump on South Dakota (and North Dakota) again:

Dakotas lead US in virus growth as both reject mask rules
Coronavirus infections in the Dakotas are growing faster than anywhere else in the nation, fueling impassioned debates over masks and personal freedom after months in which the two states avoided the worst of the pandemic.
Sounds pretty grim, until you look at the data for South Dakota (chart copied from SD Department of Health):

Doesn’t take much acumen to see that cases have been declining for the last week and a half, after a brief peak in late August (Sturgis?).

I don’t think South Dakota has much to worry about.
