WASHINGTON (FCV) – According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), New York is using approximately double the intensive care unit (ICU) beds for COVID-19 patients compared to Florida.
HHS data shows that Florida is using 531 ICU beds for COVID-19, while New York is using 1,058.
The data also reports that while New York is using 8,260 inpatient beds for COVID-19, Florida is using 4,933 – 40% less.
According to Mayo Clinic, New York has a 71.8% vaccination rate against COVID-19. Florida has a 63.4% vaccination rate, yet is seeing thousands fewer cases and hospitalizations.
Unlike Florida, under Governor Ron DeSantis’ (R) anti-mandate governance, New York has implemented draconian COVID-19 restrictions.
Despite Democrat lockdownerism being employed in the Empire State, the contrast between Florida and New York remains strong.
