    Remember the loser New York governor said that what is happening to New York was coming to us. Humm... Florida has a higher population and a really old population. Getting less than 100 deaths most days with a population of 22 million.

    What a tool bag.

    Take NYC out of the equation and this whole thing really does look like a hoax. I dont believe their numbers for a second anymore either.

    There is a financial incentive for states and private hospitals to list deaths as covid.

    What do y'all attribute Florida's success to? Is there anything you are doing better than most other states in the nation?

    Take away the disaster we used to refer to as the "New England states", and Florida is about average.

    So what are they doing better than New England states? How do we prevent what happened there from happening elsewhere?

    Nothing. Thats kind of the point. It doesn't matter what approach you take to the virus, it isn't going to be stopped. Better to try to salvage whats left of the economy.

    This isn't a true pandemic. If it was, every state would be dealing with huge numbers of deaths by now. <100 deaths per million is not worth even thinking about.

    35 out of 50 states are at or below 1/2 of the national average in deaths per million, and we are 3 months in. Only 11 states outpace the national average. Side note: all 11 have democrat governors. Could just be a coincidence, but it brings into question the methodology of reporting.

    Like Florida... I mean we just had the story of the state department of health reporting lower numbers than the coroners. Now you're bragging about Florida's great numbers.

    There has been a 90% reduction in flu related deaths since the outbreak started and we were in our worst flu season in over a decade. Definitely some number fudging

    They sealed off nursing homes, which no doubt has saved many lives.
    I think opening up the beaches and parks is actually a positive. The safest place to be is outdoors. I also think the weather is a huge positive, more people outside, and most likely earlier start to the summer slow down of the virus than up north.

    Gyms are reopening and restaurants are going to 50% capacity on Monday.

    #9 is showing progress. Some of the rest of you can keep cheering death inside

    So far, the state has reported more 43,000 cases, and more than 1,900 deaths related to the virus, around the middle of the pack in the country when weighted for population.

    But the young and healthy should get back to as normal a life as possible, DeSantis said. He argued that when a young person contracts the virus, the disease is much less likely to hospitalize or kill them than an older person.

    The governor has long maintained that Floridians need recreation to stave off fear and depression during the long months of coronavirus-induced economic shutdowns.

    Healthiest thing is getting outside and not sitting inside your house. You need to eat right, exercise, and make sure you're not overweight.

    That was a given. Taking a bath for dirty New Yorkers is key.

    I dont know how many doctors have to come out and publicly disagree with Fauci before people start listening. This is the 4th one from Stanford, so obviously we aren't talking about a bunch of quacks

    If you don't study hard you end up at Stanford.

    This is democratic leadership. In theory I want to avoid prosecution and lawsuits unless there was a complete disregard for safety though. Hard to blame with a spreading virus in general. Maybe the constant left scare tactics made medical care tough which killed some.

    Remember when I got lambasted on here for saying "those people were likely to die this year anyway"? I wonder if Cuomo will receive the same level of criticism.

    Might slip to 10th place soon with Maryland adding more covid cases. Florida 22 million population... Maryland 6 million.

    Desantis is a true leader. Handled the nursing home situation like a boss. Covid Cuomo not so much. Fredo Cuomo has his back though.

    Probably not. 3rd largest in population and we are a large travel destination. Probably got a lot of our cases from New Yorkers that have a second home in Florida.
