A demographer says Florida could be ‘like an uber-Italy’ during the coronavirus, and it shows why it’s so important for young people to stay at home

“Florida is like an uber-Italy,” Andrew Noymer [associate  professor, public health], a demographer at the University of California, Irvine, told Matt Simon of Wired. “Florida is going to be a tough situation, I would predict.” …”It’s not destiny to say Florida is going to be absolutely clobbered by this,” Noymer told Simon. “There is time with social distancing to flatten the peak. Maybe we can make this the dog that didn’t bark, so to speak.”
