Arizona, Florida and Texas are doing way better than New York ever did

by Kevin Roche

Arizona, Florida and Texas are taking a lot of heat, clearly politically motivated, for supposed out-of-control epidemic surges. Look at this chart and tell me who was out-of-control. Again, on a population basis, NY was dreadful, inexcusably dreadful. Might be more susceptible old people in Florida and Arizona than New York too, so I suspect on an age adjusted basis New York looks even worse. In all sincerity, Governor Cuomo should say nothing, absolutely nothing. It appears that the epidemic just basically ran wild in NY, with reports of very high antibody prevalence in some areas. And if you did this chart on the basis of cases, with a similar testing approach, you would get the same chart.
