North Dakota reported 2,713 active cases on Thursday, just shy of the record 2,758 actives that the state hit on Monday.

The deaths reported on Thursday included one woman in her 90s in Ward County, as well as four deaths in Burleigh: one man in his 70s, one man in his 80s, one woman in her 80s and one woman in her 90s. All of the people whose deaths were reported on Thursday had underlying health conditions, according to the state’s report.
