I’m Not Sure This Means Florida Is Handling Things Better

Just like when the numbers were worse, it didn’t mean Florida was handling things worse. It means this virus is affected by many things, including the weather and climate.

Florida has continued to post the lowest number of COVID cases in the nation, while keeping a fully open economy. Health officials in the Sunshine State reported just over 1,300 daily average COVID cases last week, which is a 5 percent decrease in COVID-positivity over the past two-weeks.

Florida now has roughly six cases per 100,000 people, which is the lowest in the continental U.S. The Sunshine State is closely followed by other red states, including Texas, Georgia and Louisiana.

Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis said he’s focused on COVID treatments to keep the economy open, instead of harmful mandates.

But what it probably does indicate is that there’s no need to do lockdowns and other strict restrictions. They aren’t going to make a significant difference either way.
