Fans pack Florida stadium for concert as state reports record-breaking number of COVID-19 cases

Source: Click Orlando

Thousands of fans packed TIAA Bank Field for a concert Saturday as the state reports tens of thousands of new COVID-19 cases.

At the Hella Mega Tour on Saturday, thousands of fans bear the summer heat. The high temperatures met with the state’s highest one-day cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic: 21,683 new cases, per federal health officials.

This number is part of the 110,000 cases reported over the past week in Florida, which was also a record.

Super duper spreader event for the unvaxxed.
If many are out of state, this could be similar to Sturgis and infect the rest of the country!

31. I looked it up

Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Weezer and The Interrupters. I had to look up the last band on YouTube and they're not very good.

3. All of these people are ....STUPID, VERY STUPID, AND VERY, VERY, STUPID...!!

I guess they don't know what a breathing tube is like..Yes, I've been there and had that,
& I don't want that to ever happen again...NEVER...NEVER ...NEVER!!!!

...And their thinking must be idiotic. "It ain't going to happen to me".

We are not talking about a few deaths...600,000 and climbing...

Let's look it in perspective...35,000 are killed in auto accidents (approximately)..................................................... ......................That number, 600,000 is 18 times as many who are killed in traffic accidents..].18 TIMES AS MANY KILLED IN TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS..SOON TO BE 20 TIMES..

So...these stupid people are driving around....N0 SEATBELTS, NO AIRBAGS, NO PROTECTIVE
EQUIPMENT ON THEIR CARS, NO REARVIEW MIRRORS, NO SIDEVIEW MIRRORS...AND THEY
THINK IT IS OK TO DO SO.....STUPID IS STILL VERY STUPID

4. According to my Trumper step daughter there are 22 million people living in Florida.

That means that over the weekend only .000095 % of the people here tested positive for Covid.

How do I even?

7. First off, tell her her math skills kinda suck

Just the one day total in the article when divided by 22M gives me:
9.856e-4
which I believe equates to
.0009856
which as a % would be
.09856%
or very close to 1 in 1000.

Keep that rate up for 1 year and you're looking at over 1/3 of the population of the state.

25. 0.1% for a single day

22,000/22,000,000 = 0.1% for a single day, if it keeps up thats 3% a month, and it isn't stable it's increasing. Delta has a reprodction or what ever that stat is for new cases from a typical case and it is 6 and climbing, we were under 3 often under 2 during the first surge back in spring 2020.

6. Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Weezer

Damn it. There are likely many Dems who enjoy this music. Coming to my city next weekend. Even outdoors, I sure as hell don't want to be around that many unmasked people.

10. Venues were booked way in advance when things were looking better

same with the Olympics and other types of events. There are people who buy tickets a year in advance for popular shows.

My daughter had tickets for the Wrigley show then. It transferred over to now.

9. I suppose they will be cancelling by...

The time the third or fourth date of the tour due to too many of the workers getting sick.

Or at least they provided a vaccination card.

17. Of course. De Satan (and the GOP) WANTS this this to get as bad as possible

The idea is to wait until the 1,000,000 deaths milestone is reached, and then start caterwauling about how "Biden failed us!"
