Looking at per week covid positive cases is a useless analysis. Who cares about testing positive, it is the deaths that should be reviewed. If you look at per capita numbers, which takes the population out of the equation for analysis, the two highest states for deaths are New Jersey 288 deaths per 100,000 people, New York 267. Illinois, where I live, is another lockdown state and it’s deaths per capita are 192. California was a lock down state with a death toll of 157. Florida is 164 and Texas is 174 And they have done a great job of trying to keep business flowing. Unlike the liberal lockdown states that have quite literally put people out of business. So I guess Desantis is doing a pretty great job, unlike the dumb ass governors of New York, Illinois and New Jersey, who just happen to be democrats, not to make this at all political.
