COVID Update for Oct. 28: South Dakota New Cases Hit Another Record

South Dakota saw a record 1,270 new COVID-19 infections in Wednesday’s update from the Department of Health (DOH). Nine new deaths were also reported.

Also, during a media briefing Wednesday, South Dakota Secretary of Health Kim Malsam-Rysdon said the federal government has notified states to expect a shipment of COVID vaccine by mid-November. She said the vaccine will initially be available to emergency personnel.

Malsam-Rysdon did not know which manufacturer would be providing the vaccine or if mid-November was a confirmed time frame.

“The federal government has asked states to be ready by Nov. 15. We will be ready,” she said. “If the vaccine shows up on our doorstep on that day, it will be getting out to folks immediately. That’s the direction and we are well prepared for that. If it comes at the end of November, we will still be prepared.”

1. Vaccine in the next two weeks is just more Trumpaganda from our deluded state administration

I hear that Sanford in Sioux Falls is at or close to capacity in regards to Covid patients. Not sure how Avera is.
