DeSantis is not doing enough to halt covid-19 spread, Florida doctors and Democratic lawmakers say
“The consequence of his leadership has been a steep rise in Covid -19 cases and increased numbers of Floridians dying,” said Dr. Frederick Southwick
to DeSantis this week about their “grave and urgent concern over the worsening COVID-19 surge in Florida.”“Since the start of the pandemic, Florida has remained a national focal point due to your administration’s lax, delayed, and incomplete responses to this serious threat,” the lawmakers wrote. “Your administration’s reluctance to use all the science- and evidence-based tools available to defeat the virus has created unwarranted roadblocks at the local level.”
For the last two weeks, one out of every five new cases of Covid-19 is in Florida, according to the White House. And hospitalization rates have skyrocketed by 95 percent over last month. Despite that news, DeSantis has staunchly refused to implement mask requirements—even in public schools, where children under 12 are not yet old enough to be vaccinated against the virus—and continues to use his gubernatorial powers to undermine local Covid mandates. Just last month, DeSantis
issued a “blanket pardon”for any person or business that non-violently refuses to comply with local Covid-19 measures in the state. DeSantis has also sued the Biden administration and CDC to re-open the cruise industry.Meanwhile, vaccination rates in the state’s rural areas remain low, despite DeSantis’s recent promotion of the vaccine. Although across the state 60 percent of residents above the age of 12 are vaccinated, counties in northern parts of the state are around 30 percent vaccinated. And vaccination rates have decreased by 80 percent since April. Yet DeSantis’s administration has acted as if the pandemic is over, discontinuing daily reporting of Covid-19 cases and banning businesses from requiring proof of vaccination. headtopics.com
“At the same time as DeSantis says the vaccines are effective—which they are—he’s also banning businesses from requiring proof of vaccination,” Dr. Mona Mangat, an immunologist who is also a member of the physicians’ committee, told WLRN. “He has taken away private companies’ ability to protect their employees and customers by requiring the safe and readily available vaccine.”
Instead, DeSantis is trolling the administration and selling merchandise mocking Dr.Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert and chief medical advisor to the White House. His campaign store is selling t-shirts that say “Don’t Fauci my Florida” and a koozie with a DeSantis quote: “How the hell am I going to be able to drink a beer with a mask on?”
But Ashby is not impressed. “If DeSantis were as concerned about stopping Covid-19 spread as he was about coming up with these clever jabs at Dr. Fauci we might not be in this position,” Dr. Ashby said. Read more: Rolling Stone »

Ron DeathSentence has no conscience Ahahaha...some kind of news flash I know!!! He's killing off his supporters one by one. Great leadership. The left continues to live in absolute fear of this guy. Oh so the democratic law makers say but no one else 🤔 Here for music takes. Bye Bye Well of course they do…
As a Florida citizen I can attest DeSantis could give a F%k about Covid! It is shameful and what is going on in our state is on him! Got to care first
Florida Leads U.S. in Covid-19 Cases as Hospitalizations SurgeThe number of people hospitalized in Florida has risen to the highest since late February, propelled by the spread of the Delta variant, large numbers of unvaccinated, few preventive measures and more indoor time to escape the heat. WSJ Times of widespread health suggest traditional antiviral actions exist. Who in our pharma funded system is sharing them? Ask your doctor? WSJ Thanks people. No sense at all. Please get your safe vaccine. Health allowing. 🙏 WSJ America has been always destroy Africans people ECONOMICAL and POLITICAL independence: Vietnam, Libya, Syria, Eritrea, Yemen, Iraq, Afgan, and who is next ? ETHIOPIA? Don't even think about it. Read HISTORY. Enough is enough. America support ZERO country to build their economy.
Florida, Iowa and South Dakota scale back COVID-19 reporting as cases surgeSome states have shifted from daily to weekly reporting of coronavirus case data, preventing communities from tracking outbreaks and deaths in real-time. GEE WONDER WHY....🤔🤔🤔 Here we go republicans hiding the truth Back in June* not suddenly because of Delta. Guess you have old Twitter where you can’t do 270 characters
COVID-19 patients in ICUs at a Florida hospital are 'begging' to be vaccinated, nurse saysA nurse at the Baptist Medical Center told CNN that she often has to explain to patients that the right time to get a vaccine is before getting sick. This is a lie As well...most would be in the ICU from a simple cold due to co-morbidity. So when are we gonna have a Rhino-virus vac? Help put that $80B cold treatment industry out of business... and there are those who have had the shot..that are in the hospital but we're not hearing about that..pretty soon there's going to be a false claim of running out of the vaccine to make people get it..
Florida heads to Supreme Court on Covid-19 regulations for cruise shipsFlorida's attorney general asked the Supreme Court on Friday to step in on an emergency basis to block Covid -19 protocols put in place by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention requiring the cruise lines to meet certain conditions before they can sail again. Florida has a let-them-die mentality. As long as they pay up first. really we were considering a cruise in the near future... with these moves to block protocols hell naw!! This is what happens when you make a health issue a political statement. Masks and vaccines are very easy to do unless you have some other health issue. I pray for all medical professionals and front line workers. So exhausted from this upheaval.
Should vaccinated people mask up with COVID-19 cases rising?Should vaccinated people mask up with COVID-19 cases rising? It depends on your situation, but masking in public can provide another layer of protection and help prevent the virus from spreading to others who aren't protected. The rush to reopen occured because businesses wanted to capitalize on Memorial Day and July 4th. Biden's reopening speech will age like Bush's 'mission accomplished' speech. I've never stopped. I've lived here long enough to know better. Covid cases are rising, if they actually are that is,for one reason only, because of the audits finding so much fraud. They are starting to release it all over to stop the new audits preparing to begin. just like they did to stop trumps economy. Yes, it was Dems and FBI.
