South Dakota reports daily record of 53 coronavirus deaths

South Dakota reports daily record of 53 coronavirus deaths”

The Department of Health recommended that people slow the spread of the coronavirus through measures such as physical distancing and wearing masks in public places, but did not make this mandatory.

About 20 percent of hospitalized patients in the state are being treated for coronavirus, the report said.

"Our doctors and nurses heroically working on the front lines need our help, and they need it now", Burgum, a Republican, said in a video message announcing the measures.

"Right now, the data demands a higher level of mitigation efforts to reverse these risky trends, to slow the spread of this virus and to avoid the need for economic shutdowns", Burgum, 64, said in a brief speech posted to social media.

A nurses' union in North Dakota opposes a policy that would allow COVID-19-positive nurses to continue treating patients in coronavirus departments of hospitals and nursing homes when they do not show symptoms. When I am out and about, I am seeing more masks, but I'm not feeling that necessity that we all should have.

The number of North Dakota patients now hospitalized was 293 on Friday, down one from Thursday.

An additional $70 million will be used to buy down interest on the eligible existing debt for any business "whose revenue was impacted negatively by COVID-19". Large-scale venues also are limited to 25% capacity.

Failure to comply with the mandate is an infraction, with a penalty of up to $1,000, though it's not clear how the order will be enforced.

All high school winter sports and other extracurricular K-12 school activities will be suspended until December 14.

The order comes after the state reached a grim new milestone on Friday as its COVID-19 death toll eclipsed the 700 mark, rising by 10 to 707, according to state health data.
