Rankings: Which States Handled COVID the Best?
Who handled COVID the best? Who handled the Fauci virus the best what states were the ones that were able to withstand the damage both with death, education, businesses. So there's a study out of the national bureau for economic research. And based on this article and I'm reading a little bit into this, but not too much. It seems as if they did a blended metric where they put death rates, business closures, education outputs all into one. So they didn't just do death rates. They didn't just do case rates.

Remember governor Kristi Noem was just attacked from every direction for her response to the virus.

Number two is Nebraska led by governor ricketts number 5 was Kristi Noem. Sorry I was going through this too quickly. And yes, I do know the difference between Nebraska and South Dakota. And then number 6 Ron DeSantis, number 7 New Hampshire,
