Why is this so different from what the graph on Google says? They’re showing 21,208 for 8/24 But 33,935 for 8/20… hard to trust any one these days. I certainly don’t trust the CDC’s numbers as Florida has already had to correct them once…

Thank you for reporting the numbers. It’s getting out of control and frankly it’s really scary. I’m still a couple months from getting my booster shot.

There goes Florida, showing off again. Always #1 in something.

And NY is #1 in COVID nursing home deaths (NJ is #2), and NY just disclosed they failed to report 12,000 COVID deaths from last year. Still hate Florida?

I’ve never hated Florida and will always find reasons to continue visiting, but it also frequently deserves its reputation. Besides, your stats don’t cancel out my stats. I stand by my sarcasm.

I have a 3-year old that isn’t eligible for vaccination yet, we are supposed to go in November, I am so close to canceling.

If we’ve learned anything since the plandemic started is that the CDC nor the FDA can be trusted. They just want to attack FL because they done so well by ignoring them and following actual science.
