South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem is calling a report linking the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally to a mass of COVID-19 infections “grossly misleading.”

Noem appeared on Fox News and says the 63-page report from the IZA Institute of Labor Economics is not true:

OC……….completely untrue. :19

The IZA Institute study cites the rally as the cause for an increase in COVID-19 cases locally and nationally, leading to 12 billion in health care costs and shows more than two hundred fifty thousand Covid-19 cases connected to the Sturgis Rally:

OC………public service. :14

Noem says the German agency based paper is a “non-peer-reviewed model” based on faulty assumptions:

OC……..not truthful what so ever. :26

Noem says it’s frustrating that the national media ran with the IZA report and continues to refer to her as a governor who has made all the wrong decisions.
