Yet more Darwinism at it's finest. Let's check back in around 4 weeks from now...

No Kidding COVID was coming to the Villages, you know damn well social distancing isn't happening in the Viagra District of Florida.

A vaccine would be nice, but we are still a few months away.

The Villages is around 70 square miles with over 100,000 residents, occupying the corners of three different counties. I'd say the fact that it JUST recently started affecting Villagers directly, and that the total count of deaths within the boundaries of the Villages specifically are still under 10 - says the Villages are doing something RIGHT.

The same can't be said for Orange, Dade, Broward, Duval, or Hillsborough counties, all of which have the WORST record of deaths and confirmed cases in the state.

Miami, Jacksonville, Tampa - if you criticize the Villages for having just a couple handsful of deaths and a few hundred confirmed cases - what are you saying about the areas that have had problems since it first arrived in the state?

Or do you not say anything about them, because your purpose is really just to trash a place you obviously know nothing about?

Clearly you've done little reading on the virus. The outbreaks and worst impacts have been in high population dense areas where human interaction tends to be more unavoidable as well as have higher traffic in/out via tourists or those who travel for business. I also wouldn't recommend pulling a DeSantis by beating your chest about how well The Villages have performed thus far given the spread, infection rate and incubation period of a few weeks that could very well paint a much different picture by the second week of August.

Just because they are late to the party doesn't mean the party is going to fizzle out. It might be a real rager.
From what I understand, some residents don't want to confirm their case because of social pressure. Harder to hide a death, but people with AIDS did it all the time. For your sake, I hope they all are doing something right - wear masks, no parties, socially distance...

MOST of us do wear masks. MOST of us don't have parties or go to them. MOST of us socially distance. What the media shows you are the exceptions to the status quo. In the stores, the vast majority of customers were wearing masks from the moment they first recommended wearing them and in fact the stores were sold out within a day of that recommendation, and the local hospital charity groups were at their sewing machines in their homes, making masks for employees the same week.

Not *wanting* to confirm their cases doesn't mean not confirming them. We all do things that we don't want to do, in life. If someone is sick enough, they'll go to the doctor. If the doctor says "you need to get tested" they get tested. If for no other reason than to prepare their kids and grandkids to start planning the estate sale when they're dead.
