Florida Now Has The Fewest Per-Capita Covid Cases In The Continental U.S.

Florida is currently the best-ranking state in the continental U.S. with fewer Covid-19 cases on a per-capita basis than any other, according to data compiled by the Brown University School of Public Health.

Only Hawaii has had fewer cases per-capita over the past seven days, the university reported.

Statistics reported by both the New York Times and Washington Post similarly rank Florida at or near the best in the U.S. mainland.

For cumulative death rate since the start of the pandemic, Florida ranks 24th when adjusting for age, according to WUSF.

By vaccination rate, Florida ranks a bit above average. The state is 20th best out of 50 states for population that is fully vaccinated.

Miami-Dade is also doing exceptionally well with vaccinations compared to the rest of Florida.

According to state data, Miami-Dade ranks second in the state by vaccination rate, with 93% of those aged 12 or older receiving at least one dose, compared to a statewide average of 72%.

Broward (8th place) and Palm Beach (13th place) also ranked relatively high in the state for vaccinations.

The vaccination rate is skewed by tourists who have been coming here for shots, so the true rate is likely lower.

You won’t see CNN broadcasting this but who cares. Florida has been booming during Covid and for all you out of state naysayers, STAY HOME. We don’t want you here. Doing just fine thanks.

Booming…lol. Businesses closed for lack of workers. #3 in death rates since Covid began. DeathSantis is another mini DJT. He’s only working for the 1% to pad his pockets. He signed a bill to pay a $5 pay raise over 5 years time. 5 more years to gain a $15 wage? The federal minimum wage is a lofty $7.25 an hr. and has been that way since 2009. How much of a raise did our Senators & Reps get for doing absolutely NOTHING!

According to Buydone’s approval rating compared to Evil Orange Man relative to his time in office, which is especially abysmal among swing voters, fact ninety-something percent of voters said they would vote for “mushroom d!ck” again right after the MSM made up that he encouraged January 6th, and because vegetable’s running mate is legitimately a Kool Aid-drinking (association with Willie Brown, disciple of Jim Jones) incompetent witch… we’ll see who is laughing even within one year from now.

Okay but I’m really confused how they got to these results?
Just looking at the link now. Louisiana is actually at a lower rate then us and California is .1 away from us.
Is this something that changes rapidly?
It just seems like a very strong statement for something that is obviously very complicated.

Also am I alone in being like what does this have to do with construction or Architecture in Miami?

Surviving covid =/= picture perfect health. Millions have now developed heart inflammation,
loss of sense of taste/smell, chronic fatigue, chronic breathing issues etc. Not to mention the permanent mental scar of being in an ICU for days not knowing if you’ll make it. And 1-2% of a population being killed off (if Covid was allowed to spread with no mitigation) is HUGE, that’s 3-6 million Americans.

Adjusting for age is so dumb because in order to retire to Florida one must be healthy enough to move away from family AND have enough to buy a single family residence. So the elderly in Florida will on average be healthier AND more likely to not live in a multi-generation household AND less likely to have to work…all that makes social distancing very easy. Plus Hawaii and Florida have the best weather to mitigate Covid transmission.

Bottom line—Florida has terrible numbers and DeathSantis should lose in 2022 AND obviously has no business being a candidate for president in 2024

Doesn’t that source say Louisiana is lower? It’s good for Florida that the summer is over, though. Covid hits worse when more people stay inside together — so hot states get worse in summer, colder states worse in winter.

Thinking people should now see that the Authoritarian public policy rammed down individuals throats in NY and CA did not work.

Florida has the 2nd largest elderly population per 100,000 in the USA.
New York is #26
California is #45 (one of the youngest populations in the USA).

Yet, the state with FAR MORE old people, Florida has less deaths than NY.

You would have to be completely ignorant of data science not to see that Florida did something right. All states SHOULD be envious of the deft policy making in Florida.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The Taliban have promised plots of land to relatives of suicide bombers who attacked U.S. and Afghan soldiers, in a provocative gesture that seems to run counter to their efforts to court international support.

The Taliban’s acting interior minister, Sirajuddin Haqqani, offered the reward to dozens of family members of bombers gathered at a Kabul hotel, Interior Ministry spokesman Saeed Khosty tweeted on Tuesday.

Um, the numbers were lower from March-August last year because nobody had enough resources for testing, and/or your orange boogeyman held the fort. Delta made numbers rise, which is now the majority of the cases, including many vaccinated, so it’s Cheshire Cat in Chief’s fault.
