MPR News: COVID-19 cases tied to MN campaign events — but full impact is unclear

MPR News: COVID-19 cases tied to MN campaign events — but full impact is unclear. “Public health officials worried these events might cause a delayed spike in COVID-19 cases. Typically, they start to see positive cases 5 to 7 days after the date of infection. And it can take weeks to understand the full impact of an event that sparks a COVID-19 outbreak. Now it has been weeks — and some infections have been traced back to the rallies and a smaller campaign visit by Trump’s presidential rival, Joe Biden — but the numbers for each of the events fall far short of what health officials initially feared.”
