    The DUmp has been all out criticizing Florida because they have been opening up. They've been claiming for days that there's going to be a HUGE increase in deaths and COVID-19 new cases.

    11. And I'm certain that's a fudged number as well.

    It's probably double or triple that.
    Yep that's their answer to why states that have Republican Governors and have not shut down to the extent that Tyrannical Democrat Governors demanded have LESS COVID-19 cases and fewer deaths.

    They're criticizing Florida and totally ignoring New York. New York has less people than Florida does and fewer elderly people.

    New York yesterday, May 23, had 1754 NEW COVID-19 cases, and 98 new deaths.

    Florida yesterday, May 24, had 676 NEW COVID-19 cases, and 43 deaths.

    New York has had a total of 29,046 deaths, Florida has had a total of 2,236 deaths.

    But it's Florida that they criticize and demean.
    OBAMA'S H1N1 VIRUS: From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (range: 195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the United States due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus.

    Well, the number of cases obviously won't be going down. So, is this increase unusual? IF it is, does it correspond with a significant increase in testing? The chart in the middle of this webpage, , does not show a significant jump, as of when I am posting this. Similarly, the cases/million population and deaths/M numbers for FL are 32nd and 27th in the nation, respectively.

    And then if you go to, there are:

    * An article dated 5/23 announcing 676 new cases; the article that has DU-folk excited is dated 5/24

    * An article dated 5/22 announcing 776 new cases.

    While just 3 data points, the 740 new cases does not seem unusual compared to the previous days.

    The data in this thread from a discussion site,,401491.0.html , from FL's DOH for 5/11-5/17 inclusive shows that the daily count of new cases has declined some, on the order of 100 less per day. So Florida reality is not the mirage that has DU-folk all giggly.

    A text out of context is a pretext.
