Why has Florida turned into the new epicenter for the coronavirus in the United States?

    Florida, Texas, and two other early-opened states are showing huge spikes in the number of COVID-19 cases, so much so many hospitals have no available beds and, as usual, the incompetent Trump administration has taken no steps to make sure PPEs and needed equipment to save patients' lives is not forthcoming.  

    Our nation's 50 states have two annual periods upon which they each rely to balance the state budget: tourist season(s) and the holidays (Thanksgiving and, most important, Christmas).  These two tourist-spending times plus the state's revenues from sales and income taxes, when added to federal dollars, is how each state can pay for its infrastructure, social programs, police and firefighters, parks, schools, libraries, government employees, and so on.  

    Had appropriate, effective preventive measures been activated by the White House once the possibility of a dangerous, deadly PANDEMIC (COVID-19) was included in the Intelligence community's daily PDBs (President's Daily Briefings) as far back as December 2019, perhaps the coronavirus spread could have, would have, and should have been contained in the same way that the highly competent Obama/Biden administration was able to limit U.S. deaths to TWO---only two Americans died---during the also-deadly EBOLA outbreaks in Africa.  For EBOLA, President Obama kept our top-notch scientists working with the WHO professionals, but also opted to send American medical teams TO THE VIRUS---to Africa where the outbreaks began. Each step taken to curb Ebola here in the U.S. was recorded in order to create for future administrations a POA (Plan of Action) for any future pandemic threats.  Guess what?  Jealous insecure short-sighted Donald Trump disdainfully ordered this Obama/Biden POA destroyed simply because he has a "cooties" mindset against all things black-man President Obama.  The POA destroyed, the PDB unread by illiterate (or learning disabled) Trump, the adamant refusal of thin-skinned Trump to even admit COVID might be a problem, the sheer incompetence of not using Presidential authority to order American companies to MAKE MEDICAL SUPPLIES needed to fight the rapidly mutating deadly disease---these have all allowed what could have been CONTAINMENT to instead rage out of control for the second time, as Trump bullies and badgers GOP-governed states to "open too early" before the new cases have been brought under control.  Trump has kept sold-out ocean liners from docking in U.S. ports once he learned these giant ships had ever-growing cases onboard!  During a televised Trump "press conference" to explain why he was keeping these ships at sea, he said that if they were allowed to dock, then the number of COVID-19 cases would go up and he didn't want the number to go up.  INSANE!  Trump did not care that the ships' coronavirus cases might be deadly for those afflicted---he openly stated that he did NOT want an accurate count if the cases were going to increase!

    Trump is doing his toddler-stuck TANTRUM (his "stomp my [lifts-wearing] foot and pout" travesty of justice again, folks---threatening to authorize NO FEDERAL FUNDS (bully-brat behavior and ABUSE OF POWER) to any U.S. states putting public safety over $$profits$$ and refusing to open.  The result: GOP-governed states strapped for cash reluctantly reopen too soon---and more American deaths are the result.

    Red Conservative states are pretty much doing everything in their power to kill or infect as many people as possible in as short a time frame as they can. It's fascinating.
