Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis has a lot to celebrate today as the sunshine state becomes the lowest state in the U.S. for COVID cases with a rate of 9 per 100k residents.

Within the data, the state also reports 147,000 Floridians have received monoclonal antibody treatments at 25 locations throughout the state.  Those treatment centers are available for anyone who is diagnosed by a positive COVID test, and it is making a significant difference in hospitalizations.  Well done DeSantis!

Press Release: “As a result of Governor Ron DeSantis’ leadership and our data-driven approach free of mandates, the State of Florida has one of the lowest COVID-19 daily average case rates in the last 7 days per 100,000 residents in the United States.

“Without mandates or lockdowns, COVID-19 cases in Florida have decreased 90% since August,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “In addition to cases, hospitalizations have plummeted in our state. This has been accomplished by making monoclonal antibody treatments and vaccines widely available throughout our state while protecting Floridians from government overreach.”

“As Florida now ranks lowest in the continental US in terms of COVID-19 rates per capita, we are proud to have stood firm in protecting liberty throughout the pandemic,” said Lieutenant Governor Nuñez. “Governor DeSantis’ approach was guided by science, data, and pragmatism, not fear and alarmist narratives.”

Since August:

COVID cases in school-aged children have decreased 87% since schools started; and,
Cases in young adults ages 18 to 24 decreased 93%.

“Under the Governor’s leadership, Florida has continued to take innovative approaches to the COVID-19 response – and it is incredible to see the data showing this success,” said State Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo. “Moving forward, we must continue focusing on data and evidence to make public health decisions and not allow such decisions to be politicized.”

“Protecting our seniors and Florida’s front line health care workers from the impacts of COVID-19 has been and continues to be a priority for Governor DeSantis,” said Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Simone Marstiller. “His data-driven, forward-thinking approach to tackling the impacts of COVID-19 are working. He has empowered Florida families to make the best decisions for their circumstances and kept them in their homes and communities and out of our hospitals.”

Since launching state-run monoclonal antibody sites in August:

More than 147,000 Floridians have received treatments at our 25 locations; and
Hospitalizations have decreased 87%. (more)
