Was listening to a couple of ham radio operators discussing the situtation in FL.

No shutdowns. No restrictions other than those put in place by businesses.

Some stats for you (nation wide)

Yesterday's COVID-19 Stats from the New York Times (AND THE DAY BEFORE)

TOTAL REPORTED ON DEC. 28 14-DAY CHANGE
Cases 19.3 million - - - - -- - - 189,044 - - - - - - - - - - - –13%
Deaths 335,141 - - - - - - - - - - - 1,899 - - - - - - - - - - - –10%
Hospitalized 121,235 - - - - - - - - - - - +10%

TOTAL REPORTED ON DEC. 29 14-DAY CHANGE
Cases 19.5 million - - - - -- - - 200,902 - - - - - - - - - - - –11%
Deaths 338,767 - - - - - - - - - - - 3,626 - - - - - - - - - - - –9%
Hospitalized 124,686 - - - - - - - - - - - +10%

Infections and deaths down but hosptials still overflowing.

There are 1440 minutes in a day


The problem is you cannot believe the stats everyone is telling you. The figures are grossly inflated. A guy here in Florida was in a motorcycle accident and died. They blamed his death on COVID because he tested positive.

Everyone will eventually be exposed to it or be vaccinated. The only stat that really matters is how many hospital beds are occupied by COIVID patients.

The mask and social distancing are to SLOW it down so the medical community can keep up. In many places hospitals and staff are maxed out.

A couple weeks ago in Mexico City it was reported people are on their hands and knees begging to be admitted, don't think we want that here, so do the right thing.

You have to believe something. What do you choose to believe?

Please volunteer at your local hospital. They really do need your help right now.

This was debunked a long time ago yet people keep spreading misinformation and outright falsehoods. It's no wonder many are really confused about what's going on. If this would stop, we would all be better off. I don't understand how anyone believes this stuff. What would be the purpose of doctors and hospitals doing something like this? Stay off Facebook and reality will eventually sink in. Chuck
