DeSantis promises to keep Florida open despite recent coronavirus case surge

Florida's Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis said this week he has no plans of imposing new coronavirus restrictions despite a recent surge in cases there.

"The Governor will not lock down and hurt families who can't afford to shelter in place for 6 weeks," DeSantis's office said in a statement to local media."Especially not for a virus that has a 99.8% survival rate. One area of concern is Assisted Living Facilities."

DeSantis, who has consistently resisted statewide lockdown measures since the pandemic began and has earned the praise of President Trump for doing so, has repeatedly insisted governments need to focus on protecting more vulnerable populations from the virus than the general public.

As of Wednesday, more than 890,000 people in Florida have been diagnosed with the coronavirus and nearly 18,000 people have died.

Population of Florida: 21,993,000. 0.2% of that figure is 43,986.

Mr. DeSantis just told 44,000 Floridians their life is less important than the economic cost of protecting them.

Also, he sucks at math. Given the number of infections and deaths in Florida (see above), the survival rate is only 98%.

By refusing mitigation measures he is setting up his state to again be the worst in the nation.

You can't protect care facilities when there is rampant community spread. The workers who come in every day live in that community, they will bring the virus in... as they have been doing since february.

Why are we such a dumb country? We can't seem to learn.
