Media's COVID Narrative Crumbles Under the Weight of the Latest Data

Over the past several weeks, I’ve written more articles than I can reasonably remember on the ongoing battle between the left and Florida, including their governor, Ron DeSantis. As the media narrative goes, Florida has been uniquely terrible combating the Delta variant, despite the fact that 93% of seniors in the state have had at least one dose of the vaccine. Further, as the left’s claim goes, the lack of mask mandates is solely to blame for the surge and if that evil Ron DeSantis would just impose them, everything would be fine.


My response to that has been consistent: COVID appears to be seasonal, and certain parts of the country will see waves at different times, just like we saw in 2020. That Florida and Texas, who both had a wave around this same time last summer, are seeing that happen again is not proof that they are doing “something wrong.” Rather, the timing is cyclical, and my assertion on that will be proven correct, as we see spikes in other states begin to occur.


Well, things are happening just as predicted, and it’s crushing the media narrative in the process.


Note that Hawaii is nearly 5,000 miles away from Florida, including a massive expanse of ocean in between, so any assertion that Floridians are somehow causing the current spike in the Pacific is laughable on its face. Rather, Hawaii, which has had a very restrictive mask-mandate (indoors and outdoors) is getting hit by Delta at exactly the time you’d expect if you were looking at past trends.


The proof? – Hawaii’s largest previous spike happened in August of 2020, the exact month they are seeing a spike this year.


It’s not just Hawaii, though. Many midwestern states are now seeing the same trend play out.
