Florida Has Beaten the ‘Surge’

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

The media have demonized DeSantis, an ally of President Trump, for his reluctance to impose a statewide lockdown, and the IHME forecast of a May 7 “peak” would seem to require an extension of the lockdown. The day-by-day trend in case numbers, however, contradicts the IHME projection. What will happen? Well, if Floridians keep social-distancing, and the number of new cases continues declining daily, not even the media’s hatred of DeSantis can conceal the gap between what the IHME predicts and the state’s own data. Hunker down and flatten that curve, Florida. I’ve got a couple of grandkids down there, and I’m planning to see them before June.
