Ron DeSantis's Florida is the unsung success story of coronavirus

Florida is larger in population than New York, more disproportionately elderly, visited by more potentially infected tourists, and its population is more concentrated in urban areas. Yet somehow, in spite of all these disadvantages, Florida’s death rate from the coronavirus is roughly half that of the Empire State. (Before you leap to attribute this to the sunny weather, note that Arizona, Louisiana, and Mississippi are all in the top 10 for death rate, whereas frigid Vermont, Idaho, Maine, and Utah are near the bottom.)
