120 new COVID deaths, shatters old record.

#desantisresign needs to trend again! Our 7 day rolling average is trending up and has been for quite some time!


State health officials confirmed 120 deaths due to COVID-19 over the past 24 hours, putting the state’s death toll at 4,009 as of Thursday morning.

That shatters the single report death toll record set May 5, when 72 Floridians died. Over the prior week, the state had averaged 48 new fatalities reported per day.

However, those people didn’t all die in the last day. Coroners may still be tying deaths from days or weeks ago to COVID-19.

The Department of Health and the Division of Emergency Management still show 102 non-resident deaths in the state, no change from Wednesday’s report.

Do you think the ACT should cancel its July test?

I live in FL and we are in the middle of a surge. Our hospitals are filling up. Should we proceed with standardized testing? Colleges across America are waiving SAT/ACT testing. I feel like they should cancel this test. Heck, they canceled the June test and it wasn’t nearly as bad.

Florida's 7 day rolling average of deaths is starting to trend upward.

I hope that it’s a temporary uptick and not something long term but I don’t see how that’s the case.

Please bombard the social media for @govrondesantis.

I am seeing reports that FL had 9,000 cases today.

Is this correct?

Maybe it’s why #DeSantisResign is trending on Twitter. It would be a shame if it continued to trend because the entire planet sees what a cluster FL is right now.

FL reported 5,508 new CV cases. Blows our previous record away.

DeSantis has lost control but he will come up with some lame excuse that young people are getting more and so there’s no reason to be concerned. Or he’ll blame Hispanic migrant workers like he did last week.

DeSantis messed up the unemployment comp system and now he’s letting the virus grow exponentially. And this is the guy Trump endorsed.

Heads up. Alex Berenson, wing nut, is stirring the pot to rile up parents/GOP vs teachers unions

He is tweeting away about the FOO scoring points against teachers. As a teacher, I say screw him! Don’t let him!!

And FL sets another record. Over 3,200 new cases. #floridacoronavirus

was trending yesterday. Time to make it trend again. Any way you slice it, those are ugly numbers regardless of average age of those infected or the hospital beds in use (which is a lagging indicator).

DeSantis declares FL won't roll back the reopening. Full steam ahead!

But we had over 2,600 new cases yesterday. Our chart is exploding. He says many are younger people. He also said many are migrants in south Fl and he literally said yesterday at his news conference many are Hispanic day laborers in the Panhandle. No one would say “white day laborers!”

Regardless of whom is infected, they can infect other people!! What part of that does he not understand???
