Trump: Florida ‘Doing Well’ Without ‘Lockdowns’ As State Passes 21K Deaths From COVID

Donald Trump tweeted today criticism about the pandemic situation in California adding that Florida is “open & doing well.”

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Florida added 17,042 positive COVID-19 cases today bringing its total to 1,264,588 as the death toll from the virus has risen to 21,135.

The Sunshine State has a population of around 21.5 million, which breaks down to one in 17 people in the state who have now tested positive for the virus.

California has almost double the population (39.5 million) of Florida and has fewer cases per capita than Florida.

Across the U.S., one in 18 have tested positive for the virus, and one in 98 globally.

So, no – that’s not doing “well.”
