"Votes" as in plural? I am not so sure. I think we can agree that it will cost him 1 vote.
To cost him one vote assumes that he previously had that particular vote coming to begin with. I'm guessing that's not the case here.

Stay safe and stay at home if possible. You don't want to be getting sick from anything at this point in time.
Remember social distancing is exactly that. The message is to stay at least 6 feet away from someone else. And to wash your hands and try not to touch your face. That is the message. HOW YOU DO THAT is left up to YOU. Some people want to TELL YOU HOW YOU MUST DO THAT. These people should PIPE DOWN. But some people will always nag. Times like these brings out the best and the worst of people.

I don't know how to link the video but Dr David Price of Cornell Med Center in NY did a Zoom conference for friends and family providing common sense responses to many issues on this bug -- based on his experience to date treating patients at all levels of exposure. Is fairly long but you do want to watch it all. His one overiding message: social distancing and washing your hands.
The best video I have watched on life with the virus, how you catch it, how to manage it, how to live with someone who is positive, when to check into hospital, masks, shopping, the future normal, etc.

Maybe you can search for it using his name.

Since Florida is the third largest state by population, that means we are doing relatively well.

"plus seasonal people"

Seasonal people are leaving, not arriving.

Why is it important to mention the number of celebrities affected by this flu? Who cares, it's a terrible thing and so many people have lost their jobs, and can't afford to pay their bills. I'm sure the overpaid celebrities will survive on the millions they have made each year.
I am sorry for the ones that lost their lives, but I'm also sorry for all the others that were not celebrities who died as a result of this horrible flu. RIP

A few weeks ago the chicken little reports were saying that this was 10 times more deadly than the common flu. Couldn't find common flu mortality percentage but this new flu is .053%. I'm willing to bet that that is not 10 times worse than the common flu.

The Weather Channel App has an icon on the bottom right hand side of the opening page for COV-19. You can seach any area by name and get the latest numbers by county. Hope this helps.

How many spring breakers that were allowed to board planes and return home, were from Iowa? THATWAS MERELY 2 weeks ago. I can somehow remember that far back, to a time 2 short weeks ago when the beaches weren’t ordered closed!

I’m surprised it’s not No.1, people come here from all over the world, Disney, cruises, escape winter. And they are still traveling. Last cruise left port around 14 March. Who In they right mind would go on cruises with virus raving the world. Lots of people aren’t too smart. Florida number will go up nothing going to stop that.

Maybe not but it’s more deadly due to no vaccine
