USA Today: The Dakotas are ‘as bad as it gets anywhere in the world’ for COVID-19

USA Today: The Dakotas are ‘as bad as it gets anywhere in the world’ for COVID-19. “South Dakota welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors to a massive motorcycle rally this summer, declined to cancel the state fair and still doesn’t require masks. Now its hospitals are filling up and the state’s COVID-19 death rate is among the worst in the world. The situation is similarly dire in North Dakota: The state’s governor recently even moved to allow health care workers who have tested positive for COVID-19 to continue working if they don’t show symptoms. It’s a controversial policy recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in a crisis situation where hospitals are short-staffed.”
