COVID Hellscape Florida Will Not Stop

COVID-19 is completely out of control in the state of Florida, in part because of the disastrous decisions made by the state’s governor, Ron DeSantis. Cases in Florida have spiked well beyond their previous pandemic highs, up to 20,000 or even 25,000 infections a day. A new report from the Florida Hospital Association shows that over 16,000 people in the Sunshine State are currently hospitalized with COVID. The situation has gotten so out of control that the reporting death totals is getting delayed in an attempt to make things look better. DeSantis has requested and received hundreds of ventilators from the federal government, while at the same time saying he does not need the Biden administration’s help and that he knows how to run his state better than federal bureaucrats do. This spike in cases, hospitalizations, and deaths is happening at a time when the vaccines are readily available and if more Floridians were convinced to take them over the past few months, so many people would not be in the situation they’re in now. Despite the strain on the hospital system and the fact young kids still aren’t eligible for the vaccine, DeSantis remains adamant about enforcing his ban on mask mandates. He assesses that virtue signaling to his far right constituents is more important to him than protecting the lives of the people in his state.
