Nearly a year since COVID-19 first touched the United States, California, and Florida – both of which have responded to the pandemic in their own ways – are yielding vastly different results.

Some states test more aggressively than others, so you can't look at "cases". You have to turn to the one thing that matters, deaths. Florida has 1130 deathds per million while California has 854 deaths/million. Florida is slightly worse than average for the US, while California is slightly better than average. Both states are seeing a significant increase in deaths, though, so it's too early to call. We will have to see what it looks like is May, once cases nationwide have significantly declined.


So how's that lockdown thing working out for you?
