This is fear-mongering that is bereft of a statistic or a fact. According to the CDC data, the peak of the Florida wave is 20% of the peak in New York. There are more cases as more asymptotic people are tested. But the number of deaths fell since April, had a small resurgence in late July, and has been falling the last two months. Mortality is falling as more young people test positive and yet very rarely do they succumb to the disease. Meanwhile testing becomes more frequent and treatments improve dramatically. In a month or two, vaccines will be introduced and they will become increasingly effective. It’s not a picnic, but it ain’t the disaster you predict.
