The Orlando Sentinel reports:
Florida’s resident death toll from coronavirus rose to 21,135 with the addition of 140 more reported fatalities on Saturday, while also adding 17,042 more positive COVID-19 cases to bring the total to 1,264,588.
With a population of about 21.5 million, about one in 17 people in the state have now been infected. That number is closer to one in 18 nationally and one in 98 worldwide.
It’s important to note the Florida Department of Health did not post a Christmas Day update. This means Saturday’s report is combined with what would have been Friday’s update.
The lockdowns in Democrat run states are absolutely ruining the lives of so many people – Far more than the damage that would be caused by the China Virus. Cases in California have risen despite the lockdown, yet Florida & others are open & doing well. Common sense please!

California is one of the largest populations in the US.
Florida had almost 11,000 new cases yesterday. They had 21,000 deaths from COVID.
California has had 23,000 deaths.
You’re not good at this, are you?

On April 27, 2020 Florida Governor Ron DeSantis called Florida “God’s waiting room” when discussing the pandemic. As of today there are almost 21,000 Floridians who have reportedly died from COVID-19

The woman who told me to delete cases and deaths is now blaming DOCTORS for the death backlog.
She’s the most corrupt, lying, incompetent and ignorant person that could be ever be put in charge.
