Nationwide, that would mean 415 000 dead from COVID... so North Dakota is about the same rate as the rest of the country if you count excess death.

January 1-Oct 1 excess death was 350 000.

By the end of the year its gonna probably be 50%+ that.

We'll see the real death numbers in 2021 or 2022 and it will be much worse than what is reported right now.

Can we still make fun of your state for thinking Olive Garden is exotic?

There's some tool I've seen on Twitter, spamming the local news twitter feed with a chart showing that deaths this year aren't that much higher than in previous years.

I know its probably taken out of context at best and deceptive at worst but where is this new round of deep coming from?

Sorry for the minority essentially held hostage by stupid.

This is why I say stupid can fark us just as surely as "competent evil."

Honesty, it's just self-preservation at this point. Those people want to die from COVID, I don't care. But they're not taking me with them.
I haven't eaten out in months. I wear a mask when I go to the store. I haven't seen my family since I don't know when. I go to work. I go to Publix or Sam's Club. I go home.  Y'all wanna die, that's your business.

That one person left gets to be Governor and they can appoint themself to the Senate. Don't know what to do about the rest of the empty positions in state and federal government.

This is what the majority wanted.  This is what they get.  Congrats on being an example to the rest of the derpers.  Maybe, just maybe, the others will learn from your example, but I'm not holding my breath on it.

I don't want any of them to die.
But when you see someone sitting on the train tracks, and you see a train in the distance, and you try and warn them, but they curse and spit on you and tell you the train is a hoax...
WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO?

32% of voters in ND went for Biden. It's way easier to sit in a blue enclave and post 'why are there 2 dakotas anyway?' and 'good, hope they die' comments with your buddies than to live here and work to change it from within.

It would be really helpful for that process if you all could not give more fuel to the 'see? Democrats all hate you' rhetoric these republican assbags use to keep this state red.

Some of us are actually trying.

NJ and NY were actually hit even worse.  About 1 in every 550 NY and NJ residents are dead.

Also, if you think about this, it's proof that COVID-19 is in fact deadlier than the flu, assuming you needed further proof.  The death rate from the flu is 0.1%... 1 in every 1,000 people who catch the flu.

For 1 in every 800 people in ND to die of COVID-19... even if 100% of the population had COVID-19 (which they haven't), that's still a clearly worse outcome than if everyone in ND had caught the flu instead.

Can we give it to the 2.5 million homeless children in america?
 
2020-12-02 6:20:17 PM  
Wow. This thread is really exposing some assholes, and not in a fun way. It's one thing to criticize people's poor choices. It's another to revel in their deaths. Quite a few of these people likely fell ill because of the actions of others. Have some humanity.

☹ Be very careful. Mask, face shield and my favorite, just holding your breath when near people.

I hope when the vaccine comes your family is at the front of the line.

The terrible thing is that masks don't protect the wearer from catching the virus so much as they prevent the wearer from spreading the virus.  For any of us to be safe, we need everyone else to behave.  And it's just not happening, because a big block of the country cares only about themselves.
