How Do Texas And Florida Rank on Covid?

Estimated Reading Time: < 1 minute

If you were to take a guess, where would Florida and Texas rank, in terms of their response to Covid?

Would they be in the upper third, middle, or lower third?

The answer is the middle third.

Since the outset of the pandemic, 1 out of every 540 people in Florida has been killed by Covid-19. This is the 26th highest rate among the 50 states. In Texas, the number is 1 in 537, which is the 25th highest rate.

The state with the highest (i.e., worst) rate is New Jersey at 1 of 333, while New York is second at 1 of 361.

Throughout the pandemic, many media outlets showered praise on the governors of NY and NJ for their handling of C-19 while vilifying the governors of states with significantly better outcomes like FL and TX. Hence, a scientific survey in November 2020 found that 32% of Trump voters and 62% of Biden voters falsely believed that FL or TX had the worst C-19 death rate in the nation.

Beyond the political implications of misinforming large portions of the electorate, such journalism can draw attention away from serious problems and lead people to false conclusions about how to protect their health and lives.

The Prickly Pear’s TAKE ACTION focus this year is to help achieve a winning 2024 national and state November 5th election with the removal of the Biden/Obama leftist executive branch disaster, win one U.S. Senate seat, maintain and win strong majorities in all Arizona state offices on the ballot and to insure that unrestricted abortion is not constitutionally embedded in our laws and culture.

Our state and national elections are at great risk from the very aggressive and radical leftist Democrat operatives with documented rigging, mail-in voter fraud and illegals voting across the country (yes, with illegals voting across the country) in the last several election cycles.
