That's the "official" count.

What is the true count?

DeathSantis doesn't care

Cannon fodder in his race to be prez!

21,731 people in Florida have died of COVID since July 12.

Let's compare that to other causes of death in Florida, just since July 12.

4380 will have died of an accident (usually the #3 cause of death)
15,650 will have died of cancer (#2)
15,660 will have died of heart disease. (usually #1)

That means COVID, which didn't exist 24 months ago, is the leading cause of death in Florida by a LARGE margin while these idiots are running around celebrating how well they're doing in response to the pandemic with novelty t-shirts and all they had to do was get everyone vaccinated in a state with the 2nd largest elderly population in the country (Maine has a higher percentage of seniors, apparently. Probably by a much larger margin by now)

On 12 July 2021, the day Governor Ron DeSantis started selling "Don't Fauci My Florida" T-shirts and other dickish merchandise on his campaign website,


This guy is not just an idiot but a criminal.

And Floridians vote for him for a 'lower taxes' because their sociopaths.

And worse is that some Floridians vote for some odd libertarian candidate, (Oh, I'm not a Republican) which is basically a vote DeSantis. Guess what you still get thoses tax and costs..and your health care cost and insurance will go up because it's a FARKEN PLAGUE.

It lowers insurance rates. Decreases the surplus population.

End of life care is very, very expensive. If they die off early. It's good bottom line.

He's Governor Boomer Remover.  All of us in the younger generations should be thanking him for lessening our tax burdens and opening up career advancement opportunities.

Yeah, but each one died with the inner peace that comes with the knowledge that they enjoyed the kind of "freedom" stupid libs will never get to experience.

There was a time I felt ok knowing that at least future historians were going to gut people like desantis and the GOP. It's not enough now. They should be facing a literal gutting for their actions in killing Americans.

I'm sure this isn't the only way he's monetized the pandemic for his own or his campaign's gain.  Using your power as Gubbner to push legislation that both makes you money and kills your constituents ought to be considered homicide of some kind.  Times tens of thousands of cases.  And there should also be a couple billion dollars in civil suits.  Rarely is evil so easily quantified by so many metrics.

It is never a good idea to be optimistic about Florida but it just might turn out the majority of those deaths will wipe out the margin favorable to Republicans in the next election.

The ones dying are overwhelmingly anti-vaxxers who are inclined to vote Republican.   And all that murderous lying has to catch up to DeSantis sooner or later.
 
2021-11-12 11:00:37 AM  
The GQP has increased production on Death, so naturally the value of each individual death has dropped, significantly. The average person is now worth roughly a t-shirt, but still, that's enough to justify cashing in on for these ghouls.

Seriously you know that dumb show with the box offering $1 mil, to push it but someone you don't know will die if you push the button? You'd get these guys in a bidding war for how low they'd go to get to push the button, as long as they make a couple bucks.
 
2021-11-12 11:00:39 AM  
"Put another way, Ron DeSantis has allowed more people to die of Covid-19 in Florida (population 21.6 million) since 12 July than have died in Japan and South Korea (combined population 177 million) over the entire duration of the pandemic."

Florida is reaching for the stars.

I'm gonna guess about 50K+.
 
2021-11-12 11:09:26 AM  
I'll just keep preaching, might save someone or fall on deaf ears but lordy, get the vaccine and stay away from people. Just coming off having COVID and I thought for sure I had one foot in the grave even with being vaccinated. You DO NOT want to catch this because it's a total roll of the dice how it reacts to your body.

While polls were pretty close in the middle of September when the headlines were that Florida was now leading the nation on COVID cases, the latest polling 538 shows in October/November (not that there is a lot of it a year out from the election) shows DeSantis with a 10+ point lead over both Fried and Crist.

Which is not to see it as a done deal, COVID has been going in cycles and all matter of tmother things can happen in the next year, but right now it looks like Republicans will retain the seat.
 
2021-11-12 11:12:03 AM  
Don't forget "Where does Ron DeSantis Go For An Apology" on May 20, 2020. There were 2096 deaths then. Under Governor Death Sentence's "effective" leadership only 58,322 additional Floridians have been officially declared as Covid deaths.

If you donate to his re-election campaign, Ron DeSantis will send an honor guard from his office to drape a "Don't Fauci my Florida" t-shirt over the casket lid of your Covid-deceased loved one at the funeral service.

Florida as the 8th highest per capita Covid death rate.  So, I guess they could have done worse?

BizarreMan: That's the "official" count.

What is the true count?


Well, based on the research of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (a research center at UW Medicine), as of May 2021 the true COVID-19 death toll in the US was somewhere in the range of 55%-60% higher than was officially reported. That would bump Florida's death toll from roughly 60k to around 95k, give or take a few thousand.

Of course, just a quick glance over the Worldometers COVID-19 data raises a bunch of red flags that Florida might be cooking the books a little bit. Like, well-done-steak levels of cooking. For instance, Florida's recent spike in cases crested on September 1 at over 20k new cases per day (using 7-day averages). Nearby Georgia saw around 9.5k cases. Florida is now down to around 1200 and Georgia 900, but Florida has a miraculous 2 deaths per day to Georgia's 51. This also stands in stark contrast to their death peaks where Florida almost broke 400 per day to Georgia's 125. (Obviously there could be age-related reasons for some of that. But man is the word "some" doing heavy lifting there.)

Not that we should be shocked Florida is cooking the books. They basically announced to the world that they intended to do so with their changes to COVID-19 reporting guidelines in the run up to this most recent spike (as was reported here on Fark).

In places like Florida, you might as well add the pneumonia deaths to the COVID deaths. Their deplorable, elected Qoroners won't report COVID as a cause of death because it doesn't exist.

And their Trumper family members are often left traumatized, impoverished and/or suffering from long Covid. Covid deaths might be just the tip of the iceberg of societal breakdown that's going to beset GQP communities, with almost no impact on Democratic constituencies because many of us wrote off our GQP "friends" and relatives even before the pandemic.

So yeah, hopefully all of that will drive down the GQP vote as well.

Yep,
Considering Florida went from Covid checkpoints on the highways coming into the state to making it illegal to enforce masks in schools. Even taking into account the state is underreporting covid stats, could have been/be a lot worse. Thankfully the major population centers are mostly dem controlled and have been bucking DeSantis's insane bullshiat.

Florida had been in the mid 20's in per capita deaths until the summer Delta Fauci T-Shirt surge.

Also NY, NJ, MA and other Northeast states that were decimated early on before masking and vaccinations suffered the most. Florida and Texas, after all the facts and precautions were known continue to kill their citizens driven by the egos of their governors.

Not enforcing mask and vaccine mandates. This is why seat belt laws are mandatory. Otherwise we could have a collection of YouTube videos of infants being flung out of car accidents while yakety sax is playing.

Speaking of which, has anyone made a video of antivaxxers on vents with yakety sax playing?

Worldometer has Fla. at just over 60k deaths ..
 
2021-11-12 11:57:16 AM  
In 2018, Ron DeathSentence beat Andrew Gillum by a mere 32,463 votes. (0.40%).

The "official" death count is now almost double that, and by the time the 2022 election tolls around, could be 3x that number. (Probably not, but ya never know down here.)

Now sure, not all deaths are gonna be R or right leaning NPA voters. But considering the mindset of the anti-vaxx and anti-mask and anti-anything-safe crowd, it's likely so.

I know earlier this month, he made a statement that registered R surpassed D for the first time in a long time. But Florida DoS only has through Sept 2021 up at the moment. And, I happened to look at the August numbers before they updated. While the gap between August and September did shrink, the percentage of R as a whole went down half a percent.

But here's the thing about registration numbers. They don't mean a lot right now. Florida had very very few Nov 2021 elections, so no one felt a rush to register or fix being dropped. Once we get closer to August 2022 (primary season) that's when you really wanna look at the numbers.
