I found this website, which claims to get its numbers from the federal government. It provides Covid information state by state: https://usafacts.org/visualizations/coronavirus-covid-19-spr...If you run the cursor over the graph "New deaths per day" you can see what the 7-day average has been for most of the year. You can compare states this way. The results I got for the 7-day average deaths in the week leading up to December 30 were:Florida ----- 13New York -- 89Oregon ---- 8Given Florida's population and high concentration of susceptible elders, it appears to be way safer than NY and my own state of Oregon. Not even close. And with Florida's lax restrictions and mandates compared to Oregon's and NY's draconian measures, what conclusion can be drawn about the effectiveness of those measures?If there is something wrong with my calculations or with the website, I'd be happy to know about it. --fleg
