For months now, the media has tried to paint Florida as the most dangerous state in the country.
The Republican Governor Ron DeSantis didn’t follow the liberal prescription for COVID. He did his best to preserve freedom for the people of Florida and the media hated him for it.
Now Florida has the lowest number of Coronavirus cases in the country and the media is suddenly no longer interested in talking about him. Just a coincidence, right?
Breitbart News reports:
Florida Reaches Lowest Coronavirus Case Rate in the Nation
Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) touted Florida’s milestone of reaching the lowest coronavirus case rate in the nation on Wednesday, highlighting the “overreach” of vaccine mandates.
“Without mandates or lockdowns, COVID-19 cases in Florida have decreased 90% since August,” DeSantis said in a press release. “In addition to cases, hospitalizations have plummeted in our state.”
“This has been accomplished by making monoclonal antibody treatments and vaccines widely available throughout our state while protecting Floridians from government overreach,” he added.
According to the latest numbers, over the past two months, Florida’s daily average has dropped to about eight cases per 100,000 residents (about 1,700 cases per day), a sharp turn from its numbers in August when it averaged 116 cases per 100,000 residents (about 25,000 cases per day). Hawaii, an island state with a strict entry policy, trails closely behind Florida with nine cases per 100,000 residents.
Ron DeSantis deserves a lot of credit for this.

Florida has lowest COVID-19 case rate in the country. They did it without vaccine mandates, without mask mandates in school & with no restrictions on businesses. Life simply went on. @GovRonDeSantis was right again. My latest in Friday's @nypost https://t.co/XxO8Hh8Awf

The media sees DeSantis as a threat in 2024. They should. If Trump doesn’t run, DeSantis could be the GOP nominee.
