DeathSantis fiddles while Florida burns

"A day after it recorded the most new daily cases since the start of the pandemic, Florida on Sunday broke a previous record for current hospitalizations, as the number of patients in hospitals because of COVID-19 once again broke through the 10,000-person threshold.

The Sunshine State had 10,207 people hospitalized with confirmed COVID-19 cases, according to data reported to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.

The previous record was from more than a year ago, on July 23, 2020, more than a half-year before vaccinations started becoming widespread, when Florida had 10,170 hospitalizations, according to the Florida Hospital Association.

Florida is now leading the nation in per capita hospitalizations for COVID-19, as hospitals around the state report having to put emergency room visitors in beds in hallways and others document a noticeable drop in the age of patients.

Gov. Ron DeSantis has resisted mandatory mask mandates and vaccine requirements, and along with the state (Republican) Legislature, has limited local officials’ ability to impose restrictions meant to stop the spread of COVID-19. DeSantis on Friday barred school districts from requiring students to wear masks when classes resume next month.

Now wait for the body count to rise so the ghoul can add to the size of the funeral pyre.

More likely 1903. Especially because of the clothing.

Florida could go like Britain and India and be headed for a peak, then a nice decline in cases. DeathSantis could come out smelling like a rose.
