FL among the states that have best managed the pandemic; NY among the worst

Florida is among the states that have best handled the Chinese coronavirus, receiving an A grade, while New York, which the establishment media has continually praised, is among the worst, earning an F, a study by the Committee to Unleash Prosperity (CUP).

On Monday, the CUP released what it described as “the most comprehensive analysis to date of how states have handled the COVID-19 crisis,” published by the National Bureau of Economic Research. He analyzed three key aspects in each state, including coronavirus mortality, the economy and education throughout the pandemic.

“It answers the question: how have states managed to balance the health of their citizens, keep their economies functioning and keep job losses low, and keep their schools open so that school-aged children do not experience long-term educational setbacks,” the press release states:

The study verifies other studies that found the lockdown of businesses, stores, churches, schools and restaurants had almost no impact on health outcomes in any state. States with strict lockdowns performed almost no better on Covid death rates than states that mostly remained open for business.

The study also found that keeping schools closed had almost no impact on child or adult death rates, but had serious implications for students’ academic progress.

Considering all of these metrics, the top performing states with A ratings include Utah, which came in first with an A+ rating, followed by Nebraska (A+), Vermont (A+), Montana (A) , South Dakota (A), Florida (A), New Hampshire (A), Maine (A) and Arkansas (A). The details show Utah, for example, with an industry-adjusted unemployment rate of 1.5%, with states like Florida showing just 2.1%. The categories also showed a percentage of in-person school, with A-states such as Arkansas having the highest percentage – 96.8%. Florida came close with 96.2%.

The measurements also showed age-adjusted and metabolic health-adjusted coronavirus deaths per 100,000. Vermont saw the lowest per capita number in Group A at 155.5.

F-rated states include some of the most left-leaning states in the country, which have passed draconian lockdown restrictions and pushed coercive vaccine mandates and extended mask mandates.

New Jersey comes in last with an F grade, but other F-rated states include Illinois (F), California (F), New Mexico (F), and New York (F-). Although not a state, Washington, DC also ranked F-, ranking second to last behind Garden State.

According to the study:

We now know from the responses of various countries that the US federal government (and most governments around the world) made many tragic mistakes in responding to Covid 19. But one of the wisest political decisions was ultimately was to let the 50 states and their governors and lawmakers craft their own pandemic response policies. Federalism worked. Over time, states learned from each other which policies worked most and least effectively to contain the virus while minimizing the negative effects of containment strategies on businesses and children.

The findings are particularly remarkable given the establishment media’s longstanding obsession with comparing blue states, such as California and New York, to Florida throughout the pandemic, as activists and Left-leaning politicians have continually criticized the governor of Florida for refusing to issue a statewide mask. mandate and prioritize personal freedom and in-person learning for school children. Yet for months the Sunshine State has continued to report fewer coronavirus cases per capita than the restriction-friendly blue states — a fact largely ignored by the media and establishment officials, like Dr. Anthony Fauci.
