How bad it is in FL right now

My county is not on the list. I’m sure it will be in time. It’s definitely soured me on staying in Florida any longer than I have to.

Get out before DeSantis kills you with his mandates against common sense.

My job will keep me here another couple of years. After that...I'll aim for a blue state.

In fairness many of those areas shown are very small cities or counties. Some where a single case can change the infection rate by several percentage points. Number 2 Hamilton county has less than 15,000 residents, so that equates to less than 10 cases. The third one, Baker county is about 25 cases.

It's bad here - but just remember that stats can be made to say about anything.

In a few weeks the FDA will re-awaken and you'll see more mandates begin to flow. Republicans are doing their best to fight over other needless issues and likely won't have a problem doing so.

It was not all that long ago Missouri was the hotbed. They must have gotten over the hump. Florida will, too, shortly.

I dunno. The covid19 projections website is showing a peak NEXT week, and of course depending on what happens then, it could even go higher ... [covid19.healthdata.org]

Edit: and my own state isn't showing a peak until the first week of September ... Le sigh. [covid19.healthdata.org]

Nebraska wasn't showing up as a state with a high rate infections, but all the local news stations had stories about full ICU's. Few of the state statistics can be trusted. It's so bad that I don't know if the excess death rate will be valid.

Our reporting systems, particularly in deep red states, is starting to look remarkably like those of mainland China. Check out the HBO doc In the Same Breath for eerie parallels.
