The number of new COVID-19 cases continues to decrease with 27% fewer cases of the Wuhan flu reported by the State of Florida last week. (Oh wait. We can’t say that.) The virus that started in Wuhan, China, that came from bats, but totally did not come from the Chinese Virus Lab in Wuhan, China, known as COVID-19, that has killed over 4.5 million people worldwide.
Now we know that communists regimes, like Cuba, North Korea, and the Chinese Communist Party, are very transparent. If the virus had actually come from a lab, they would be very transparent with their internal investigation and share it with us. We shouldn’t blame the Chinese Communist Party for covering up the source of the death of over 4.5 million people across the globe and the impact it’s had on our economy. If there’s anyone we can trust, it’s the Chinese Communist Party…cough cough. China did proclaim that COVID-19 was imported into their country via frozen foods. (We can’t make this stuff up.)
Okay, now that I’m done with my anti-communist rant, we can talk about the continued decline in cases statewide from the Delta wave that hit Florida hard. As you can see in the chart above, we’ve had the lowest number of new cases since July. We hope to continue to see this decline as we grow greater immunity (either through vaccination or by catching COVID and recovering).
FLORIDA COVID-19 FATALITIES
Fortunately, new fatalities continued to drop with 21% fewer fatalities last week versus the prior week. That said, the number of deaths are still high with over 1,368 fatalities reported last week.
MIAMI-DADE COVID-19 CASES
In Miami-Dade, the Delta wave matched the spikes we saw in the prior two waves peaking at just over 20,000 new cases per week. Unlike the statewide charts that saw a much higher peak from Delta, Miami-Dade was more in line with the prior waves. Some speculate that we didn’t see a higher rise from COVID because (1) Miami-Dade had a higher vaccination rate than other parts of Florida and (2) because Miami-Dade had higher infections meaning more people with natural immunity than the rest of the state.
The good news is that in Miami-Dade we saw a 26% drop in new cases last week with under 4,000 new reported cases.
We keep sharing this information as it’s important for everyone to understand what their person risk factor is to COVID-19. Since the very beginning, when we were receiving reports from other countries, we knew that age was a major factor with COVID-19 fatalities. The older you are, the more at risk you are to die from COVID-19. Over 75% of COVID-19 fatalities in Florida have been among those 65 and older. Nearly 94% of deaths have been among those over 50 years of age.
Once the vaccine become available, my family and I chose to get the vaccine in order to protect ourselves. We weren’t forced to do it. We chose to do it based on our health and what we felt was best for each member of our family. Furthermore, we wanted to limit the exposure to senior members of our family.
However, just because we chose to do it, doesn’t mean it’s right for everyone. We have and continue to recommend the vaccine, but there have been questions about blood clots with the J&J vaccine and inflammation of the heart with some young men with the Pfizer vaccine. In our opinion, the risks of these side effects were less than the risk of actually catching COVID, but that was our decision. No one forced it upon us.
I want to be very clear: The COVID-19 vaccine does NOT contain aborted fetal tissue. No one is injected with fetal tissues.
However, during the research phase of the vaccines, it’s come to light that aborted fetal tissues were used during the development of some of the COVID-19 vaccines. As a result, some people who may actually want the vaccine are protesting and not getting vaccinated because they don’t support the use of aborted babies for medical research. They feel that getting vaccinated is an endorsement of the practice of using aborted babies for medical research.
