On June 1st the state was sitting at 56,830 cases. I'm guessing that we'll be seeing a jump in deaths in Florida soon.

It is seeming more likely of us hitting 100k cases a day. Honestly, I think the only thing that will prevent us from hitting the 100k a day mark is a lack of testing, which is a problem again.

i know that my father's nursing home had a dedicated wing and then a dedicated floor, so they were isolated. my father contracted COVID probably right around the time this decision was made to put COVID patients in nursing homes, like close to the exact date, so I'm guessing he likely would have contracted COVID no matter what.
I still think that Cuomo did the best he could in a bad situation with the nursing homes. NY was hit hard first and the federal government was very hesitant to help and from what I understand of it, in ways held us back from helping ourselves by hording supplies.

The other states had so much warning from us.

I was wrong (initially), as the result in Georgia was positive for a while and the infected numbers remained low...some people went out and went to businesses (kind of safely) while others continued to effectively shelter in place. I am certain that mobility indicators remained low for a few weeks. And honestly, there reached a point where I thought it was brilliant that he had pushed through with the opening plan contrary to scientists. Since the end of "school" (in GA that was mid-May), there has been a continued creep of people moving around locally and going to vacation spots (FL, east coast) and you have sports resuming along with the opening of pools that are signals to many people that you can let your guard down. Most people are doing more than they were in early April, but "not going crazy like my neighbor" so it is being rationalized on a relative scale. It will take mandated mask-wearing (at least indoors) in order to move people back to the "this is serious" stage. In hindsight, I think the opening was bold but could have worked had masks and other mandates been part of the initial proposal as opposed to "suggestions". It is not too late, but it will be difficult to get everyone to listen.
There have been data issues so that may be part of it. On a percentage basis, it's not that dramatic increase, was 1-2% per day for a long time and now around 2-3%. But in terms of numbers we're talking about close to 2000 new cases per day in GA. At this pace we should be passing the 100k mark by the end of next week, plus who knows how many more cases that weren't documented. Got an emergency alert this morning from my county, saying the usual stuff (i.e., wear masks, social distance, stay at home), most likely just to send a strong message before the holiday weekend.

Its doubling every 7 days in Florida.

As I said, Texas and Florida are going to get smashed by the Pandemic due to the laissez faire attitude of their governors/people.
