More Americans in Florida are catching the coronavirus, being hospitalized, and dying of Covid-19 now than at any previous point in the pandemic. The Delta variant rips through the state despite the vaccine being readily available for months. 25% of COVID deaths come from Florida. DeSantis refuses to do anything to lessen the risks of death for his constituents. Over 20,000 are in hospitals.
The Orlando mayor asked residents to conserve water to help maintain the city’s supply of liquid oxygen. Liquid oxygen is needed both to purify drinking water and to treat Covid-19 patients. I guess you can’t do both in the DeSantis Circus. Health officials and experts blame DeSantis because his policies allow the unvaccinated to spread the virus. Overall, only 52 percent of Floridians are fully vaccinated. However, the figure is less than 30 percent in the state’s hardest-hit Republican counties or DeSantis Country. This pattern persists. Mississippi and Alabama currently rank last, with less than 38 percent vaccinated.
