Some left-wing Democrat governors want to damage their states’ economies with extended coronavirus-related lockdowns, noted Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL), offering his remarks on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
Marlow described Florida’s response to the coronavirus outbreak as “a pretty big success story” largely ignored by news media.
“I think that the death toll and economic toll [in Florida] have been significantly lower than comparably sized states like New York,” Marlow said.
Steuebe continued, “If you compare the [coronavirus] numbers in New York to the numbers in Florida, they’re staggeringly different.”
According to an interactive map produced by the New York Times tracking coronavirus infections and deaths — citing “state and local health agencies and hospitals” as its data sources — Florida had 52,277 cases with 2,363 deaths.
