Governor Doug Burgum had some good news to share about COVID-19 in North Dakota. The latest numbers look good:
The North Dakota Department of Health reported a net decrease in hospitalizations of 117 individuals with COVID-19.
The state health department says hospitalizations in our state have fallen rapidly in the past few weeks, and while much of this difference reflects newly discharged cases, part of this drop reflects a quality control effort as case workers catch up with these changes following a recent surge in cases.
304 people tested positive for the virus in the past 24 hours…and there were24 new deaths, bringing to 1194 total deaths since the pandemic began.
Burgum is advising people to be especially careful over the holidays — avoid large crowds, especially with a lot of unmasked people…and to watch your social distancing.
