While mainstream media seemed happy when Florida’s figure of COVID-19 cases spiked last summer, they seem to be eerily quiet now that it has dropped.
Over the summer, mainstream media put Florida in the spotlight almost every evening as left-wing networks slam Gov. Ron DeSantis for doing a “poor job” of controlling the pandemic. Ironically, when COVID-19 spikes happen in Democrat-controlled states they remain mum.
Now, these same media outlets have become silent about Florida right when it has reached the 3rd lowest rate of COVID infections in the country.
Per a New York Times COVID-19 tracking map, Florida’s case rate in 100,000 people over the last week was 13, placing them third just behind Connecticut and Hawaii.
According to the Daily Wire, Florida’s 14-cay change rate took a nosedive 48% while Alabama’s went down 61% and Hawaii’s fell 51%. Conversely, northern states experienced the opposite where it rose in Colorado (32%), Vermont (27%), Michigan (26%), and Minnesota (22%).
Last Oct. 1, Click Orlando said that as the figure of new COVID-19 cases continue to tank in Florida, on Friday, the state reported 5,396 new cases per day on average over the last week. This comes as the fifth straight week that the numbers went down.
Despite the decline in Florida’s cases, the same cannot be said for the rest of the U.S. as the numbers are still way up since Joe Biden’s inauguration.
