Republican Governor Ron DeSantis touted his state’s milestone of getting to the lowest covid case rate in the country this week, stressing the overreach of Biden’s vaccine mandates.
“Without any mandates or lockdowns, coronavirus cases in Florida have gone down 90% since August,” Governor DeSantis said in a media release. “In addition to this, hospitalizations were also way down in Florida.”
“This has been done by making vaccines and monoclonal antibody treatments widely available in our state while also guarding Floridians from federal overreach,” he said.

According to the new numbers, during the past two months, the state’s daily average has gone down to around eight cases per 100,000 people (around 1,700 cases per day), a big turn from away from its numbers in August when it had 116 cases per 100,000 people (about 25,000 cases per day). Hawaii, an island with a strict policy, is behind Florida with only nine cases per 100,000 people.
As Yahoo News said, Florida’s case rates are “roughly around California’s current coronavirus rate and less than one quarter of Vermont’s,” both of which have vaccine rates higher than 70 percent. In other blue states, like New York, the figures are even worse, with 21 cases per capita.
With Florida’s incredible success, Governor Ron DeSantis has positioned the state as a safe haven from the large overreach that state and city governments have forced upon the citizenry with strict mandates and vaccine passports. This past Sunday, the governor said to Maria Bartiromo on Fox News that he would create a law that would give a $5,000 bonus to unvaccinated police officers to relocate to Florida.
“We are working right now to recruit police officers from other states because we do need more people in our sheriff’s and police departments. So, in this upcoming legislative session, I will hopefully sign a law that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state cop that comes to Florida,” DeSantis said on Fox News.
“So, Minneapolis, NYPD, Seattle, if you are not being treated well, we will treat you better here. You can fill an important need for us, and we will compensate you for it,” he said.
