Brisbane has imposed a $50,000 fine for not wearing a mask. In Florida, we did not go insane. Most small businesses survived and we did not have draconian lockdowns. Florida has about 2 million more people than New York, and while New York reported 17,839 new cases, Florida had 15,445. The open policy in Florida has fewer COVID cases than New York, proving that the lockdowns have failed to work. Instead, lockdowns are destroying jobs and ensuring that there will be nothing to return to since the WHO is already telling people that 2021 will be WORSE than 2020! Even the number of people who have caught COVID in a restaurant is just 1.4% of the COVID cases. That does not justify destroying restaurants and society.
