Burgum: Data suggests North Dakota’s approach to COVID-19 is working

North Dakota’s per capita rate of testing remains among the top 10 in the nation, while its rate of positives is hovering around 3.2 percent or so. State traffic statistics in some areas are down 53 percent as well.

Meanwhile, eight states have both high testing rates and a low rate of positives, North Dakota among them.

New Jersey and New York have some of the highest testing rates, but also fall into the quadrant with the highest rate of positives.
