56 Florida trends as ICUs hit capacity with Covid-19, Angry Internet says 'Trump is letting Americans die'
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to grip the world, the US is witnessing a peak in the total number of deaths and surpassing its own record on a daily basis. Although the pandemic has left people distraught over its dire circumstances, the nation has reopened its economy trying to focus on development amid a global health crisis.
According to reports, on Tuesday, July 7, 56 intensive care units in hospitals across Florida reached capacity as Covid-19 patients continued to flood medical facilities. "35 hospitals show ICU bed availability of 10% or less, according to the Agency for Health Care Administration in that state," reported CNN. Even though the virus positivity rate was surging drastically, Florida was one of the first few places to be reopened after the lockdown, allowing the public to access its beaches, which is believed to have contributed to the increase in coronavirus cases.
On learning the disaster that had befallen Florida, a large number of people took to Twitter to express their disappointment in the US government for its inefficiency and criticize President Donald Trump for reopening the economy putting people's lives on the line. "56 Florida" started to trend on Twitter as Internet users slammed the Trump administration, blaming it for Florida's current situation.
One angry Twitter user wrote, "HERE YOU GO, @realDonaldTrump!! THE PANDEMIC IS OVER, ISN'T IT!?!? YOU DAMN FOOL!! 56 Florida hospital ICUs have hit capacity" Another tweeted, "Liar. 56 Florida ICUs are at capacity. That's intensive care units. People are suffering and dying every day. You're disgraceful. I hope you roast in hell."
Many Internet users noted that Trump's government was deliberately letting people succumb to the illness. One wrote "I feel for the people of Florida. Your Governor is a complete Moron that is taking the lead of our President who is a bigger Moron. Remember their lack of action when you go to the polls. Trump and the entire GOP is purposely allowing Americans to die. #56 Florida."
