This is not California, which has the strictest vaccine and mask requirements in the United States. Although not in Vermont, 71% of the inhabitants who live there are fully vaccinated, and most are in the state.
No, according to the capital, the country with the lowest daily COVID cases is the same as any other country these days: Florida.
It was exactly the opposite. In mid-August, Florida experienced an average of about 25,000 new cases per day or about 116 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
Sunshine has become one of the epicenters of a pandemic. However, in the months that followed, Florida’s daily consumption fell by more than 90% to about 1,700, or eight per 100,000 inhabitants.
This is about half of California’s next-generation COVID rate, much less than a quarter of Vermont. Hawaii (9 per 100,000 inhabitants) is the best single country in the world. But it’s not just about congratulating Florida.
Like everything else about COVID trials in the United States, lower pollution rates in the country are becoming a political hotspot.
Conservatives on Twitter and Fox News have declared that the Florida change justifies the Republican government’s (and perhaps 2024 presidential candidate) arrangement. Or vaccination, even to highlight a fairly expensive post-contamination drug along with monoclonal antibodies.
“As the number of COVIDs in Florida declines, DeSantis critics and mainstream media remain silent,” reads a recent headline on Florida-owned website Newsmax.
“Well, that’s official, Florida now has the lowest corresponding case of Capita COVID in most of the 48 neighboring states,” tweeted last week, government producer Megyn Kelly Show.
“If you’re looking forward to the next group of DeSantis media insurance, it’s good to be coming soon.”
There is no solution. It is doubtful that even Desantis himself can claim that Florida was responsible for enrolling far fewer cases of COVID than in August. Viruses that we have long recognized can be used like waves. The waves rise, reach their peak, and eventually recede on a very regular timeline.
According to David Leonhardt of the New York Times, “Covid, strangely, has had a regular, regular cycle. In the United States, a recent series of cases has steadily increased for several months and then began to decline.”
Despite its extraordinary predominance, the Delta variation followed this pattern. The state of Florida is no exception. Cases began to rise around the end of June and began to fall by the end of August, as expected.
Similarly, until mid-September, all states in which COVID instances have decreased in recent weeks (South Carolina, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Texas, Kentucky, and North Carolina) continue to expand dramatically.
And the better the vantage point, the more people who have lately been infected, and the steeper the descent.
Epidemiologists don’t understand why COVIDs are coming back and appear to be over the one-month interval. Perhaps this is the time it takes to reach the perfect goal within the selected group of humanity.
As Leonhard said, perhaps people themselves “repeat the cycle of COVID prophylaxis over and over, depending on the stage of interest.” It’s probably part of both.
In any case, DeSantis’s argument acknowledges it all. Waves of pollution are inevitable, and Florida tends to pass during the summer season, but heat and humidity put pressure on people indoors, supporters say.
Claiming precautions such as vaccines and masks cannot prevent those waves. So what are the factors of patience that violate human freedom?
This is a good positive judgment about painting. Experts predict that SARS-CoV-2 will eventually become endemic and spread worldwide in seasonally evolving versions. This can make many people feel sick for a few days, but it doesn’t hurt much in the long run.
Because everyone has a certificate of immunity from vaccination or past infection, it is lethal. Mask requirements and vaccine passports may become a larger problem than they are worth at that point.
But the problem is that the United States hasn’t, and probably won’t, stop being exceptional this summer. However, 43 percent of Americans, or one-third of the eligible population, are not properly vaccinated.
Boosters are still beginning to regain full safety against the extreme infections of older, medically-minded Americans who have seen their immune system weakened for many years in the light of Delta’s avoidance traits. For the first time since the outbreak began, most unvaccinated youngsters have returned to national school classes.
As a result, transmitting the virus without urging safeguards like indoor duplication and knowing vaccination is a risky proposition. DeSantis, for one, effectively opposed such efforts by tweeting about monoclonal antibodies.
This is a costly medication that induces inflammation and, after infecting others with the virus 30 times, possibly allows for more practice.
As a vaccine and, in addition to banning mask requirements, people who resist vaccination obligations in the framework is a great way to get anti-wax law enforcement agencies to transport unemployment allowances and $5,000 bonuses to Florida.
So it’s true that COVID waves can also appear and disappear, but whatever a leader like DeSantis does, the bigger question is which of those components, while the waves inevitably arrive, how it works.
And what matters is this summer season in Florida, and people aren’t making more than they should have right now.
Why? Many of them died too far. My own raw numbers are staggering. COVID-19 claimed the lives of 23,384 Floridians in 2020, before the vaccine substantially eliminated the chance of death for the most vulnerable.
More than 21,000 people have died in the last four months alone, roughly the same number as in the previous four years. Every day, an additional 135 people in Florida die. Even worse are the relative figures.
According to the capital, before to the Delta attack, Florida had the 26th highest cumulative COVID death rate in the country. Currently ranked 9th.
In addition, the three Florida states on the list, New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts, suffered the most deaths at the onset of a pandemic long before vaccines and various interventions significantly reduced disease mortality.
