Apologies if you’ve already seen this:

How did Florida end up with one of the best COVID-19 case and death rates in the US despite Gov Ron DeSantis refusing to implement mask or vaccine mandates?

Early treatment saves lives. Where have I heard that before?

Not from the MSM, FDA, CDC or NHS etc….

The Daily Mail is an Establishment newspaper, just like the rest – but occasionally it gets in trouble by publishing ‘unapproved material’ & upsetting the status quo.

Desantis seems to be one of the very few politicians who has a spine, a brain, and is not a puppet of the Elite.  I hope he’s watching his six.

I heard him for the first time several months ago during a press conference at a police station – it was one of the few times during the pandemic when a politician sounded honest & refreshingly rational….

FL is 8th in deaths per million according to Worldometers, not exactly “one of the lowest  US COVID-19 death rates”

It’s considerably lower than NJ or NY, both of which had extensive lockdowns and currently have horrendous rules limiting unvaccinated individuals.

At 0.27% death rate compared to California at 0.18%, I’ll take the freedom and the slightly higher death rate.

21% of Floridians are 65 and over.  15% of Californians are 65 and over.  The ratio is almost the same as the ratio in death rate.  Fancy that!

Great data Rich & Dave. That puts FL’s death rate in perspective, normalize for covid’s age bias and the rates are going to be much closer.  And yes, I’ll take FL’s freedom over NY or CA any day. But I suspect the “no treatments for you” program is pretty consistent throughout the US.  I live in CA, my 32 yo nephew passed away from covid without getting any medical treatment for it at all.

Florida also has the 2nd highest rate of tourism in the USA – which must have had some impact on viral spread.
