Study claims Sturgis motorcycle rally led to 260,000 coronavirus cases, not all agree with study’s data

A new study claims the Sturgis motorcycle rally held in South Dakota last month has led to 260,000 cases of coronavirus since the rally, multiple media outlets are reporting.
The study was done by the Center for Health Economics and Policy Studies at San Diego State University by using cellphone data.
But not all are agreeing with the research.
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem said the study was fiction, adding the research was not peer-reviewed, the Sioux Falls Argus Leader reported.
“Under the guise of academic research, this report is nothing short of an attack on those who exercised their personal freedom to attend Sturgis,” Noem said in a statement, according to the Argus Leader. “Predictably, some in the media breathlessly report on this non-peer reviewed model, but on incredibly faulty assumptions that do not reflect the actual facts and data here in South Dakota.”
