Florida Has The Lowest Covid Cases As Dem States See Numbers Rise
Republican Florida Governor Many conservatives have praised Ron DeSantis’ approach to COVID-19 mandates and restrictions.
Recent reports have shown that Florida has some of the lowest rates in the country, even as states under Democratic leadership are seeing an increase in cases.
In many states, cases are on the rise
The state reported an average daily infection rate of 1,393 per day as of Friday. This is approximately six percent of the 100,000 residents of the state. It also registers as America’s lowest per capita rate.
Florida saw a drop of 2 % points in the last two weeks.
However, news from other parts of the country is less encouraging. In fact, a number of blue states are experiencing a remarkable increase in COVID-19 cases.
Michigan has averaged 8,457 cases per hour, which is 85/100 residents. In the last two weeks, Michigan has seen an 88% increase in its population.
Pennsylvania has an average of 49 new cases per 100,000 people each day. This is in addition to the 6,261 cases that are being reported daily. This is a 40% increase in two weeks.
“Learn from Florida’s experience”
New York and other states are also experiencing a trend in their COVID-19 numbers, which is likely to prove to be a difficult pill for Democrats after portraying DeSantis’ response as irresponsible.
While Democrats have advocated for vaccine mandates and lockdowns and other restrictions, Florida’s governor has consistently rejected such efforts, despite opposition from progressive politicians and the mainstream media.
His state is doing better than other Democratic-led states as his press secretary stated in a statement last week.
“It just shows once again the success of Governor DeSantis’s science-based and data-based policies,” Christina Pushaw said. “He’s always made decisions based on the data and that continued even during the Delta surge this summer what he realized would help was not mask mandates in school or lockdowns but provide treatment that actually works.
Concerning the rising infection rates in the blue states, she expressed her hope that they would “learn” from Florida’s experience and avoid harsh restrictions such as lockdowns which have been proven to be ineffective mitigation measures.
