I already asked this question but now I cant find it. Any suggestions or thoughts ? Florida has about 21 million people so about double the Dominican Republic. Florida has about 60,000 deaths so half of that is 30,000 deaths. The Dominican Republic has less than 5,000 deaths. Why ?

Aren't folks in Florida older? I mean retired people, so more prone to die from anything. Folks in the DR are tougher, they had to build resilient bodies down here, so they don't die as much, and simply are much younger.

Palm Beach country, Broward county , Miami-Dade county. These three account for the majority of the covid infections and deaths in Florida. Highly populated, crowded inner cities, large population of obese people, especially Africans Americans. Large population of old people.

Correct. Florida is where New Yorkers go to retire. It is practically genetic. Lots of old ladies hanging out that "killed" their husbands. The occasional "old man in a hat" that leaves his blinker on for 50 miles on the highway. Now even more people are fleeing to Florida based upon CV19 restrictions elsewhere which don't exist in Florida. It is the state which has "moved on" the most so far. There is an old joke in NY. "What is a nice Jewish wine? Answer: " I wanna go to Florida!" of course spoken with a Long Island accent. One of the most annoying versions of the English language ever. I know, I went to SUNYA. So yes, Florida has an older population that retire there.

28 DR vs FL 42 so yes there is a significant difference in medina age BUT enough to explain 30,000 deaths FL vs less than 5,000 DR...

Florida is the Bermuda shorts wearing, (with black socks and white belts) Lexus driving, over sun-tanned geriatric capital of the world.
Half the people there are wobbling around on canes visiting the skin doctor and urologists' offices every week, so yeah just like every year the flu takes many of them out

Maybe the new DR GOV has done a most excellent job in dealing with the virus ? Or has the US done terrible job? I have no idea which one it is but the glaring differences in deaths cannot be ignored.
