For all the media swooning over Cuomo, it ”ain’t” New York.

Boy, Georgia is really struggling after opening up a few weeks ago. Cases and deaths trending down.

Oh, btw, Governor Abbott said that Texas had its lowest death daily total since April 3rd, yesterday, and is trending down.

When you really look at the State by State comparisons.....doesn't it really just boil down to some combination of population density (biggest factor), poverty level, climate, number of outlier outbreaks, and maybe a little luck? This issue is bigger than any one decision Cuomo made, or DeSantis made, or Whitmer made, or even Trump for that matter. This issue has gotten way too politicized, unfortunately. Once the virus was here, the death count was inevitable. Our country was never going to lock down -- not in the manner other countries did.

All I know is news media has Trump doing a very poor job, and Cuomo being presidential material due to the great job he is doing.

Some would call that FAKE NEWS!

Probably more than just the factors that you mentioned, and I’ve said many comparisons are somewhat apples to oranges. But, we can certainly look at decisions that some governors made in particular, and judge the effect of those decisions.

Cuomo and NJ governor, Murphy, required nursing homes re-admit recovering CV-19 patients into their nursing homes and rehab facilities. While Gov DeSantis was locking down these same facilities in Florida, testing, contact tracing, and protecting its facility residents from contacting the virus.

Yes, some governors have made a life and death difference for their states, for better and for worse. But the media seems much more enamored with the mesmerizing lectures of Andrew Cuomo to notice. Very Obamaesque.

60% of Pennsylvania deaths have occurred in nursing homes while the state Health Secretary removed her mother from the nursing home at a critical time. Hmmm.

Pretty much, but I'll throw demographics in there as well. Politics is what's keeping governors and mayors from adjusting their strategy to fit to those factors.

States offering the most COVID-19 support

WalletHub assessed each state and the District of Columbia on 17 metrics in three main categories: coronavirus relief and medical services; food and housing assistance; and unemployment support.

Our data set includes factors like whether the state will offer a free coronavirus vaccine once one exists and whether it has adopted long-distance healthcare technology. It also includes metrics such as the coronavirus relief fund per capita and the share of households in poverty receiving social assistance.

Originally, Whitmer implied it didn’t happen and was an “internet rumor”. Then, as more facts came out, she said it was a joke.

Whitmer’s hubby drove across state to get their boat out (against her directions for Michiganders to do so) , but he had scheduled boats ahead of him when he got there. He tried to cut the line by saying his wife was the governor. He was refused.

Then, they try to act like it didn’t happen. Then it was a joke.

No, she’s the joke.

No one is getting this right. Only some are getting it less wrong. This has been a disasterous response all around.
