The two hardest-hit states by the coronavirus as of Tuesday evening, Democrat-run New York and California, are not getting the same level of negative attention by the leftist mainstream media as the GOP-governed hotspots of Florida and Texas, which have lower deaths and cases.
Although the ongoing spike in cases and, to a lesser, extent a rise in deaths, has spared New York, the sheer number of infections and fatalities in NY and surge-impacted California exceed those in Florida and in Texas, respectively.
The cases in California are about 20 percent higher than in Florida and Texas, respectively. California deaths are nearly double those from Florida and Texas.
In New York, where the pandemic appears to be under control, infections are about 50 percent higher than in Florida and Texas.
Fatalities in New York are more than 600 percent higher than those in Florida and more than 800 percent larger than those in Texas.
