Miami to close beaches for Fourth of July weekend due to COVID-19 spike

Due to a recent rise in COVID-19 cases, Miami-Dade County plans to close beaches for the July Fourth weekend. Gatherings of 50 or more will be prohibited, as well. County Mayor Carlos Gimenez, according to his office, has planned to sign an emergency order to close beaches July 3 to 7. He stated that violators may face a second-degree criminal penalty of up to $500 and 180 days in jail.

I'm forced to wonder if this increase in numbers is due to increase in testing. If you test 100 random people and 9 of them are positive that's 9%. If you test 100,000 people and 9,000 test positive that's also 9%. It's like saying that 100 people died last night from car accidents (that's horrible!) but not comparing it to the normal amount of 375 (oh, then that's good). Also, is that worldwide (that's great!) or just in the USA (not so great)? Is that in the state of California (not so good) or in the city of Denver (WTF happened!)? See what I'm getting at? Raw numbers are meaningless without a baseline. There is something very wrong going on with this whole virus thing and the fear mongering news media. Since the beginning of life on Earth there have been hundreds of new viruses that engulf the planet every year. New, deadly and virulent, but our bodies learn to adjust by updating our immune systems. It's called natural selection. Viruses were here before life began on Earth. If it weren't for viruses life would never have begun. Viruses are essential to life on Earth. Without them we would never have existed. Viruses are literally our friends! Just keep your immune system healthy with nutrition and exercise and we'll all be fine. Unhealthy people must take proper precautions.

Well it’s hilarious actually, I was recently watching a YouTube video about a palm beach council meeting when all these right wing nuts came in going on and on about masks saying they’re unconstitutional but I see these non mask wearing ppl are going to be infected anyways. It’ll be ironic the anti mask ppl will drop dead like flies because they refused the one thing which will protect them from COVID-19 until a vaccine is created.

Beaches will be closed, instead there will be a protest for George Kirby. Nancy Pelosi will be guest speaker as long as she's sober and can find her teeth.

This is a good idea people in Miami all smell bad they rarely take baths let alone wash their hands. Most of them are leftist that hate the USA so why give them a place to get drunk and spread their germs. SHUT IT DOWN this is what they voted for let them have it. The rest of Florida will be at a BBQ talking about the price of ammo and its recent scarcity.
