We’ll never be able to definitively conclude the exact reasons Florida became one of the worst states, but there are some obvious guesses. Whether it was anti-mask hysteria, a lackadaisical vaccination strategy, or dangerous rhetoric from ‘leaders’ about the nonexistent risk to the non-elderly, the cumulative effects are clear: Florida has had one of the worst results after adjusting for its characteristics (and one of the worst overall with no adjustments). Whether this result holds through another winter surge is unknown, but in no way could Florida be considered a success story or a model to emulate.
How Deadly Is Florida’s 2021 Summer Wave? Although the COVID-19 situation in Florida has dramatically improved over the past month or so – despite still being among the worst states in terms hospitalization rates (44th as of September 21) – the toll of the deadly summer wave will not be exactly known for many moreContinue reading “How Deadly Is Florida’s 2021 Summer Wave?”
ike waves of COVID (and toxic red tide) continually washing over Florida, so is the bullshit from the Florida Department of Health.
Last year, when states and the federal government both failed to set up any reporting infrastructure about COVID-19 cases in schools in the United States, I teamed up with FinMango and Google to do it ourselves. The Covid Monitor became the national tracking database for COVID-19 nation-wide in schools quickly, with valuable collaborations with groupsContinue reading “Florida Schools Opening Amidst Worst Week since Pandemic’s Start”
I dream of a day when I get to bring people good news instead of doom and gloom. As a climate scientist and COVID-19 data expert, that day has yet to come for me and I’ve had the harrowing burden over my career of being a proverbial ‘data dark cloud.’ But I have faith thisContinue reading “Florida’s Continued COVID-19 Crisis”
he CDC reported 16,868 new cases of COVID-19 in Florida yesterday, and another 16,337 cases today, as well as 252 deaths between the two dates.
Since I’m still suspended from Twitter pending review, I’ll be using this forum more actively to discuss Florida’s COVID-19 data, as reported by the CDC. I’m still getting around to seeing what we can do with the CDC made available online for hospitalization, case and death data for COVID-19 for the state. A reminder ofContinue reading “Florida COVID-19 Data Update; June 15, 2021”

The last few weeks felt like a whirlwind. First, I headed back down to the Gulf Coast with a crew of documentary filmmakers to retrace the lifetime of hardship that made me into who I am today. I visited my impoverished home town, the room where I sheltered during Katrina, the concrete slab where myContinue reading “The End of an Era”
The CDC now provides more data about what’s going on in Florida than Florida’s own Department of Health (DOH), and that data often shows a much more grim picture than the state would lead people to believe.
