The increase has pushed factories to the brink of extinction even as businesses struggle to maintain a healthy workforce. In response, some governors acknowledged the failure of their authorized strategy and pushed for stricter and more restrictive health regulations to prevent the spread of the virus.
Mr. Wyoming Gov. “We have relied on people to take responsibility,” Mark Gordon said Friday.
However, other governors, including those in southern Dakota, have continued to oppose such actions as the need to impose tariffs.
Here’s a look at how these mayors have dealt with the fall.
South Dakota Gov. Click noem
“There are a lot of people asking questions about the effectiveness of the vaccine, and South Dakotans should take the time to read this information so they can make good decisions for themselves and their families,” she wrote in a statement last month. “As I said before, if people want to wear a mask, they should be free to do so. Similarly, those who do not want to wear a mask should not be ashamed to wear clothes. It.”
Jodi Doering, a nurse at the South Dakota emergency room, said some of those who died at the hospital still denied the virus.
“They do not want to believe that Covid is real,” she said. “Their last words were, ‘This can not happen. It is not true.’ “”
Despite the growing health disaster, Noem said Friday that her strategy has worked.
North Dakota Government. Doug Burgum
Doug Burgum, a businessman who was elected President of the Republic in 2016, has been opposed to quarantine enforcement since the epidemic began.
But that stance has become unresolved in recent weeks as Covid-19 has passed through the state. At the per capita level, North Dakota has the highest number of cases of strep throat and fatality in the last seven days of any U.S. state, and is the second highest in South Dakota.
Last weekend, he issued a public health regulation requiring people to wear masks and restrict gatherings in homes.
“Now, the data calls for higher-level mitigation efforts to reverse these dangerous trends, to slow the spread of this virus and avoid the need to close the economy,” “our situation has changed, and we need to change with it.”
In addition, Burgum’s executive order limits the capacity of people in bars, restaurants and banquets.
“We believe in the North Dakotans. We believe in the power of personal responsibility. And we want more personal responsibility now than ever to slow down the Covid-19.”
Mr. Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon
In the country’s most populous country, Gov. Mark Gordon, a Republican, took office in 2019, did not issue a spring stay order and did not call for a referendum.
But after months of urging villagers to take “personal responsibility” to protect themselves, he admitted on Friday that the strategy had failed. Wyoming has seen a steady increase in the number of new cases of head infections per day for the fourth time in seven days, with hospital admissions and deaths rising sharply.
In a press conference full of frustration and anger, he called people “on their knees” for their irresponsible actions and said it was “time for Wyoming to wake up and get serious about what he was doing.”
Gordon said the virus was destroying the workforce more than the government.
“We have more businesses across the state closed by sick workers than our health orders,” he said.
“If I can not rely on you, we will have to do something else.”
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds
Kim Reynolds, the Republican incumbent who took office in 2017, has been protesting for months and years.
Currently, Iowa is second only to Dakotas in terms of measles incidence cases per capita, and the state has the fourth highest per capita hospitalization rate per capita. Its 7-day winning rate is more than 50%, behind only South Dakota and Wyoming.
She said mills have been fueled by the virus, and she has accused many Iowans of being “satisfied” with the need for curves.
“That does not mean that these changes will be easy or popular, but it is necessary if we want to keep our business, our children in school and our health care system stable,” she said.
Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts
Pete Ricketts, a Republican presidential businessman who has been running for governor since 2015, has voted as governor almost entirely in the fight against terrorism.
“This is a serious situation for our hospitals, and we must play a part in slowing down the spread of this virus,” he said Friday.
The level of restrictions in the state depends on the readiness of the state hospital, but even the restrictions are narrow.
Ricketts also called for a referendum, but pushed against the demands of the state, saying, “I swap the education of the people.”
He said on Friday while quarantining himself at home with his wife after guests ate a positive test for Covid-19. He was tested for the virus.
Idaho Gov. Brad Little
The outbreak of Idaho is not as severe as in other neighboring states – on average per capita, it ranks 17th in the last 7 days.
However, Gov. Brad Little, a Republican, took office last year, admitting that the strategy, to date, without state legislation and a limited number of rallies, has not been effective. He said in particular that public education on scarcity was insufficient.
He said half of Idaho’s population is subject to local restrictions, but people do not comply or are using their restrictions in private social places. The hospital is warning that they may have to start reasonable care.
So on Friday, LIttle announced that he was signing a public health order that would take the state into the second phase of the reopening plan, banning more than a dozen people, both inside and outside, except for religious and political rallies.
Noi did not issue a nationwide campaign, but he called for 100 members of the National Guard to replace the health care system.
“Our hospitals and other health care providers are telling us that too many health workers across Idaho are sick of Covid, and they are contracting it in the community,” he said.
