Are New COVID19 Cases In “Liberated” Florida Alarming? Or Good News?

Florida’s COVID-19 Data and Surveillance Dashboard of June 21, 2020

Reports of deaths often lag behind, especially on weekends.  However, if this trend from Florida  continues, it is good, not bad news.  Florida opened up its restaurants, hair salons, etc. more than three weeks ago.  More COVID-19 cases but fewer deaths may mean that more young, healthy people are getting infected with mild cases, and building immunity. It could mean most elderly and vulnerable are protecting themselves until danger passes. The “experts” now call this strategy “segment and shield”.  They are using it in England, Scotland, and Sweden. If it works, we might see the biggest danger over by end of summer.  At this point, it is only a hunch & a hope. Only time will tell.
