(Minn) 3 of 4 border states have much higher per-capita cases than MN, but no stay-at-home orders

Coronavirus In Minnesota: Gov. Walz Says He Is Worried About Lack Of Stay-At-Home Orders In Iowa, North Dakota And South Dakota, WCCO, AP, 4/4/20

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz said he’s worried about neighboring states that have yet to issue stay-at-home orders to try and slow the spread of COVID-19.

“I do worry about that,” Walz said, adding that he has communicated with officials in the three states that border Minnesota to the west and south, the Pioneer Press reported. “It’s probably only a matter of time before they issue those, too.”

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said at a press conference that the state has “taken significant and incremental steps” to limit the spread of the virus and a stay-at-home order is not needed yet. North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem echoed those thoughts.

“We’re a low population state and a large low population state. I will use every tool at my disposal as governor to protect the lives and safety of North Dakotans,” Burgum said Friday. “But I’m only going to use those tools if it makes sense and when it makes sense.”

(S.D. Gov) Noem said a statewide order wouldn’t be worth the disruption it would cause even though she predicted that up to 70% of the state’s population might get COVID-19.

Reminds me of WWII movies where the captain or lookout of the submarine screams "dive dive dive!"

Except for Kristi "bloodlust" Noem, it's "die die die!".

The following is per viewed 4/4 308a CT: https://coronavirus.1point3acres.com/en

Note: all 3 states have 56% to 69% higher percapita cases than Minnesota:
Cases per million population: MN: 153, SD: 239, ND: 244, Iowa: 259,

Wisconsin, the 4th border state has 365 cases per million and does have a stay-at-home order (thanks to Gov. Evers(D))

A couple of others of interest, also cases per million: NY: 5869, CA: 351
