The left-wing media has been attacking Florida every day and accusing it of being a COVID superspreader. But now, the Sunshine State has the lowest COVID rate per capita than any state in the nation.
As of the end of November, Florida is seeing only 6.7 cases per 100,000 people. That puts it at the lowest COVID rate in the nation.
At 28.4 per 100,000, the U.S. case rate is four times higher than Florida’s.
Florida also stands in stark contrast to states with stringent mask and vaccine mandates. For example, Michigan had some of the most intense COVID measures in the nation instituted by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), but it has a case rate of 89.4. Minnesota also has had strict measures in place, and still faces a rate of 64.2.
Vaccination rates may be correlated with COVID case rates as well as lockdown measures. According to Johns Hopkins, more than 62 percent of Floridians are vaccinated, while less than 55 percent of Michiganders are. Minnesota has a similar vaccination rate to Florida, with more than 63 percent of residents vaccinated. In the southwest, Arizona has a case rate of 52.7, with 56 percent of the population vaccinated.
Note that Florida has not instituted the draconian COVID measures of states such as New York, California, or Illinois. And yet, the Sunshine State is thriving now even as those deep blue states full of left-wing COVIDiots are flailing.
What a surprise, huh?
