Covid Act Now
I looked on your chart you posted and could not find anything on the death rate. I looked it up and there have been a total of 2,441 deaths in Mississippi attributed to Covid or a death rate of .08 percent, not even a tenth of a percent.

I was talking about the positivity rate, not the death rate. It came down quickly, thank goodness. I think it's about 18% today, maybe lower. The spike took a lot of people by surprise.
