Florida health officials confirmed 7,023 additional cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday and another 232 resident deaths as a result of the novel coronavirus. The state has now verified 1,790,743 COVID-19 cases since the outbreak began and 28,048 resident deaths, according to the department of health. Biden claims herd immunity wont take place for another year.
Joe Biden has no COVID plan
Another 478 non-residents have died in Florida from COVID-19, and there have been at least 74,884 resident hospitalizations attributed to the virus in the state since the start of the outbreak. Deaths verified in the past day include 19 in Miami-Dade County, seven in Broward County and eight in Palm Beach County.
Florida has also now verified at least 201 cases of the COVID-19 variant that emerged from the United Kingdom and is believed to be a more contagious strain. That’s the highest number for any state in the country, according to the CDC. Regardless, Biden wants more lockdowns and mask mandates while opening our southern border to thousands of third world migrants. The statewide positivity rate for yesterday’s testing was 6.93%.
North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum tells @brikeilarCNN that he doesn’t have any concerns that dropping the state’s mask mandate could lead to a surge in Covid-19 cases and deaths again. https://t.co/EtOrqF5UjF pic.twitter.com/UDMwndk2RM

Democrats claim this is the “new normal”
Worldwide, the number of COVID-19 cases reported is more than 106.6 million. There have been more than 2.3 million deaths worldwide attributed to the pandemic, according to data compiled from various sources by Johns Hopkins University.
Top members of President Joe Biden’s COVID response team are warning internally that the U.S. may not reach herd immunity until Thanksgiving or even the start of winter—months later than originally calculated—according to two senior administration officials.
In an interview with CBS News this week, Biden hinted at some of these concerns, saying it would be “very difficult” to reach herd immunity—a population-wide resistance to the virus—“much before the end of the summer” with the current daily rate of approximately 1.3 million vaccine doses. Other top officials working on the federal government’s COVID-19 response say they are uneasy about vaccine supply long term and the impact on herd immunity, and have begun to explore ways to expand U.S. manufacturing capacity, potentially through new partnerships with outside pharmaceutical firms.
