Florida and Miami-Dade County: Politicians Appear to Ignore COVID-19 Rise

Florida is one of 4 states with the highest infection rates. Miam-Dade County has largest number of among Florida Counties. Hospitalizations are starting to go back up. Vaccinations are increasing but not like many other states.

What are Governor DeSantis and Mayor Levine Cava doing. They are doing the worst that they could do–opening up, opposing masking (DeSantis), sending bad signals to the population by eliminating the last remaining curfew.

They are abandoning the people for political and economic advantages, advantages that are harvested with increasing illness and deaths.

STATE OF FLORIDA

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY

Thank you, Governor DeSantis (4)

For facilitating the spread of B.1.1.7, the UK variant as well as other more dangerous variants, in Florida and to homes of tourists and spring breakers who acted totally without regard for their fellow human beings.

Thank You, Governor DeSantis (3)

For making it immensely difficult to find appointments for coronavirus vaccinations in a thicket of providers of hospitals, pharmacies, counties, healthcare systems….

Your regulations and restrictions have greatly weakened and disincentivized counties and municipalities to get people to follow good, well known public healthcare practices.

Thank you, Governor DeSantis (2)

For hiding multiple thousands of coronavirus deaths in Florida. Florida is now estimated to have thousands of excess deaths not yet counted as coronavirus deaths.

Don’t trust any COVID-19 information from the State of Florida.

FLORIDA: MORE DEATHS, MORE INFECTIONS
