Bismark Tribune: Active COVID-19 cases in North Dakota continue to set records; 2 more Burleigh deaths reported

Bismark Tribune: Active COVID-19 cases in North Dakota continue to set records; 2 more Burleigh deaths reported. “Active cases of COVID-19 have climbed to a new high in North Dakota for a 12th straight day. More than one-third of the 5,837 active cases are in Burleigh and Cass counties, both of which saw significant numbers of new cases reported Monday — 115 in Burleigh and 218 in Cass, home to Fargo.” 5,837 active cases doesn’t seem like much until you reflect that the population of North Dakota is 762,062. If I’m doing my math right I think that means that 0.76% of the population of North Dakota is dealing with an active coronavirus case. Compare that to North Carolina, with a population of 10.5 million and 36,762 active cases. That’s 0.34% of the population dealing with an active case.
