Fox News can be relied on to praise the far-right way of handling Covid-19. Michigan is lot further north than Florida, so winter forcing more people indoors may have something to do with their higher Covid-19 new infection rate. Florida has 2,847 deaths per million so far, and Michigan 2,528, so Florida hasn't done too well. Australia is at 77 deaths per million so far, so neither state looks all that good to me. The Netherlands is at 1,118 so Jan isn't thinking as hard as he ought to be. -- Bill Sloman, Sydney

Interesting to note that north of the border, fatality rates in ppm have just reached values reported in the US >365 days ago . . . . To me, that suggests a full year of unneccessary casualties. RL

Florida excludes everyone who isn't a full-time resident of Florida from its case reporting, if someone's there for vacation for two weeks and gets sick it's not reported in Florida and it's not reported in their home state AFAIK, they don't exist. As the biggest winter vacation destination in America they do want the tourism money but they don't want the tourists making them look bad, or at least worse. Of full-time residents the rest of the state has a large senior population who were as well or better vaccinated than many state's average early on, and their overall rate is not bad by American standards at over 70% IIRC. Hey, vaccines work! As the deaths per million show a lot of the younger people from there who didn't bother with it died

Massachusetts and Florida are somewhat similar in deaths per capita but their curves are sorta the reverse of each other, MA starts out very high at the beginning of the pandemic and gets things under control. Florida starts out low and waits until they get clobbered.

Out of 51 states Florida is in the #13th rank in deaths per million. Almost all the the top group are Republican led states: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/ So, if you want to avoid Covid, live in a state that doesn't have a Republican Governor. https://ballotpedia.org/Partisan_composition_of_governors John

Right now, cases and deaths in MA are increasing, and cases and deaths in FL are nearly zero. That suggests that the let-er-rip approach results in about the same integrated harm without the damage from draconian lockdowns and political blather. But regional variations are huge and unexplained. Brandon has forbidden travel from eight Black-majority countries, an act that he once called xenophobic and racist. Africa's very low reported covid rates are still unexplained. -- Father Brown's figure remained quite dark and still; but in that instant he had lost his head. His head was always most valuable when he had lost it.

I don't think that tells the whole story, Massachusetts has a Republican governor (well, a RINO anyway) and has done consistently pretty well on case rates, the death rate per capita overall is high though due to large senior population and the state got hammered early on, it was one of the ground zeros for the epidemic in the US. MA conservatives tend to be a vicious but pragmatic sort, they hate the libs and the queers and the fags and the feminists plenty but their reasons don't have much to do with the idea that Jesus told them to be that way and you won't find them attending some Evangelical church like they figure they're doing God's work or something, what a laugh. They do understand self-interest and when the chips are down they tend to wear masks and get vaccinated as well as anyone else, a pragmatic sort.

Of the top six states by PPM deaths, half have Dem governors. All sorts of correlations are confusing here. Bad data probably accounts for a lot of that. -- Father Brown's figure remained quite dark and still; but in that instant he had lost his head. His head was always most valuable when he had lost it.

They didn't really "let-er-rip", Florida got a reprieve for some time while MA got clobbered early on when there was nothing, no treatment and no vaccine. Florida still had a huge spike equal to Covid's opening salvo here when there was ALREADY A VACCINE! Remember when The Donald's team of professionals were saying "we think it is a blue-state problem..." and it was, for a while...

Ha ha I saw a "Brandon" sticker on somebody's pickup the other day. Definitely one of the goofiest "inside jokes" of all time. What's wrong with saying "Fuck Joe Biden"? When I want to say fuck Joe Biden this is what I do, I say "Fuck Joe Biden." Pay me $25 and I will say "Fuck Joe Biden" to anyone you like as a public service.
