Canada has given first shots to 34% of the population and any adult will be eligible from May 24? This is despite the fact that they, like Japan, have to import all vaccines.

Sounds like they are doing pretty well to me.

Most states have a residency requirement to get the shots.

Florida didn't, until the news learned about foreign fat-cats flying in on private jets to get vaccinated. Now they have a residency requirement - most people show either a FL DL or state ID to get the shot, but some "seasonal residents", can show a 2 other documents - basically a recent utility bill and mortgage/rent payment - if they don't have a state DL or ID card.

Given the high number of people being infected sad as these deaths are, it shows that the numbers of deaths going down. Good news

And still more people moving there, recovering and living their lives. Not only does DeSantis deserves a medal, but there should be a holiday made in honor of what this man has done for his state.

I think you should move to one of them. You already put all your savings into gold, right?

Well, he’s moving in the right direction.

He returned the money he received from those Russian gentlemen and voiced his support for LGBTQ.

Laudible actions!
