9 out of the 10 worst states for COVID spread are run by Republicans.
For deaths it's 50-50 in the 10 worst states... but the Democrat states had high death rates in the beginning and the Republican states had higher death rates in the last few months. That leads me to believe that strict lockdowns worked in both preventing the spread of COVID and deaths related to COVID (the "Democrat run states" had high death totals in April and May and then dropped dramatically as the lockdowns took effect). In Republican run states you had spikes in October through now in deaths -- which leads me to believe that loosening restrictions early resulted in more spread and more death.
You left out the part about Florida having a substantial older population which should have led to even more deaths. Can you post the CDC not believing Florida's death rate?The CDC doesn't believe Florida's official covid death rate. I don't know why anyone would tout it in an comparison. Florida is also the state with the most advantageous weather for no lockdown with year round outdoor dining, and activities.
Gotta remember who the virus hit hard in California. Not only the nursing homes, but your low income Hispanic that live in multi generational houses were hit very very hard. Due to the nature of their employment, not going to work was never an option. They went, sick or not and had massive infections. They are also a population which doesn’t use medical care. So, the vast majority of cases weren’t counted. Those workers then spread it all through households. Also, obesity, diabetes, poor overall health and poor nutrition made this very tough on them. Your white middle to upper class, heck they worked from home and chilled. The Hispanics had it tough.
A woman named Sherry Vill became the 10th person to accuse New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) of sexual misconduct on Monday, alleging at a press conference that the governor kissed her on both cheeks upon meeting her in 2017.
The latest allegation involves an incident Vill says occurred while the governor was touring homes, hers included, that were damaged by floodwaters from Lake Ontario. The incident was witnessed by local officials and others accompanying Cuomo for a tour of the area, according to Vill.
Speaking at a news conference hosted by attorney Gloria Allred, Vill said that while Cuomo explained the move at the time as how Italian Americans greet each other, other comments made by the governor during his tour of her home led her to believe that the gesture was sexually charged.
I can't get into all of it now, but Florida is a whole lot more complicated than lockdown yes v no.
He's being stubborn at this point. He can't be forced to resign (I would assume), but I believe there was a case opened that can lead to impeachment.How the hell is Cuomo still in office though? I don't know that all of the claims against him are valid, but considering everything, a lot of politicians have been forced out or stepped down for much, much less.
They have, yes. But, they also haven't.How the hell is Cuomo still in office though? I don't know that all of the claims against him are valid, but considering everything, a lot of politicians have been forced out or stepped down for much, much less.
