New coronavirus infection numbers plummeted in Florida after vaccinations became widely available, but they have ticked up in recent weeks. The state is reporting daily cases close to four times the national average — 26 new infections per 100,000 residents, the second-highest number in the country. The state’s latest covid-19 death rate is almost double the national figure, and it ranks fourth for current hospitalizations.

Seems like a really bad idea to disrespect science and the experts who know a whole lot more than you do, but DeSantis understands the need to stoke the outrage machine. I can only hope it comes back to bite him in the ass when his supporters start dying.
