FOX News – Florida is reporting the lowest number of coronavirus cases per capita in the nation.
The Sunshine State reported a daily average of 1,393 coronavirus cases as of Friday, six per 100,000, which was a two percent decrease over the last two weeks.
Gov. Ron DeSantis has been slammed by critics in the media since the start of the pandemic over his opposition to government-imposed mask and vaccine mandates.
In 2020, DeSantis was accused by a Democratic politician of going on a “killing spree” for opposing mask mandates.
A Vanity Fair headline from September of this year referred to the governor as an “angel of death.”
“He’s always made decisions based on the data.” – DeSantis Press Secretary Christina Pushaw
At the same time Florida reported the lowest amount of new cases in the country per capita, coronavirus cases are surging in many states where strict lockdown orders were issued.
DeSantis Press Secretary Christina Pushaw told Fox News:
“It just shows once again the success of Governor DeSantis’s science based and data based policies.
“He’s always made decisions based on the data and that continued even during the Delta surge this summer what he realized would help was not mask mandates in school or lockdowns but provide treatment that actually works.”
