Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez apparently blames Trump for the fact that New York and New Jersey forced nursing homes to admit patients who had tested positive for COVID-19. And she apparently doesn’t know that Florida’s sunshine is good for your immune system. And she apparently thinks Florida’s death rate is higher than New York’s and New Jersey’s.

Wow!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets so many different things wrong in the video below.

As I have explained here and here, New York and New Jersey both required nursing homes to admit patients who had tested positive for COVID-19. This caused the disease to spread, and infect, and kill, a huge number of people who lived in these nursing homes. This constitutes mass murder.

But instead of blaming this mass murder on New York and New Jersey, Ocasio-Cortez apparently blames it on Trump.

And as I explained here, Florida banned nursing homes from admitting patients who had tested positive for COVID-19. This saved a huge number of lives.

But instead of praising Florida’s actions, Ocasio-Cortez criticizes the state.

Ocasio-Cortez also apparently doesn’t understand that the sunshine at Florida’s beaches helps people’s bodies to generate vitamin D, and that this helps to protect them from COVID-19.

Also, Ocasio-Cortez apparently doesn’t seem to understand that just about every single mass outbreak of COVID-19 that has been documented, happened inside.

And Ocasio-Cortez apparently thinks that Florida’s death rate is higher than New York’s and New Jersey’s.

But here are the real numbers. COVID-19 deaths per 1 million population, as of May 17, 2020. Source: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/

New York: 1,446

New Jersey: 1,155

Florida: 92

Likewise, the Palm Beach Post reported the following rates of elder-care resident deaths per 100,000 people, as of May 13, 2020:

New York: nearly 27

New Jersey: 51

Florida: 3.5

But I’m not surprised. Time and time and time and time and time and time again, Ocasio-Cortez has proven herself to be completely ignorant when it comes to anything involving numbers.
