On Friday, based on NPR, the Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention reported a complete of 23,903 new coronavirus instances in Florida—a report single-day complete for the reason that starting of the COVID pandemic… after which they continued to rise (to 28,316 and 28,317 on Saturday and Sunday, respectively). Final night time it was reported that the state is searching for outdoors assist, asking the federal authorities for 300 ventilators as its hospital capability is pushed to its restrict.
As if a lethal virus weren’t sufficient, the state additionally has to cope with Governor Ron DeSantis, who has reacted to his state’s troubling upward COVID pattern by… [checks notes] threatening to withhold the salaries of any schooling officers who try to enact a masks mandate and blaming the state’s COVID drawback on immigrants?
On Sunday night time, Seth Meyers laid into DeSantis for his wild leap of logic in suggesting that Florida’s rising—and really, very lethal—COVID drawback has nothing to do with a governor who’s now threatening to punish individuals who do the one easy factor that each well being official has been recommending since this pandemic started: put on a masks. No, no, no. DeSantis positioned the blame on the toes of Joe Biden, saying: “This can be a man who ran for president saying he was going to ‘shut down the virus.’ And what has he accomplished? He [has] imported extra virus from all over the world by having a wide-open southern border.” DeSantis then issued a problem to Biden immediately, declaring: “Why don’t you get this border safe? And till you do this, I don’t need to hear a blip about COVID from you.”
DeSantis’ determination to equate two issues that don’t have anything to do with one another, i.e. border safety and the truth that, per NPR, one in each 4 hospital beds within the state of Florida is occupied by a COVID affected person, was not misplaced on Meyers:
“I’m no scientist, however I do have Google Maps on my cellphone and I’m fairly positive the border has nothing to do with the Florida COVID surge for the reason that border’s like a thousand miles from Florida. You don’t get in charge one thing that far-off out of your issues. If a child in Nebraska throws his frisbee within the neighbor’s garden, you’ll be able to’t say it was caught within the sturdy winds of La Nina.”
Besides that’s precisely what DeSantis has chosen to do. And he doesn’t need to hear a blip in any other case.
