Monroe County, Florida( Florida Keys and Key West)

Monroe County Florida County Commissioner Michelle Coldiron's statement below evinces a complete disregard for the heath of residents and visitors. She is stating that the policy of Monroe County is to allow 80% of the population  to become infected with the Coronavirus in order to achieve "herd immunity". A portion of the population will die or suffer long term physical effects from infection in order to achieve "herd immunity".This policy is outrageous especially considering the latest evidence is that immunity, if acquired, will not last long. Her mistaken belief will lead to dire consequences without any benefit.  Commissioner Michelle Coldiron must resign immediately. The email addresses of each Monroe County Florida  Commissioner are found below.

 

Commissioner Michelle Coidiron's statement:

The Emergency Management Team check in with the Department of Health and the local hospitals DAILY regarding our case numbers and our hospitalizations. The hospitals have all reported they are currently able to meet the demands of a spike in hospitalizations. All have extra supplies on hand, the county acquired extra ventilators, the hospitals all have plans in place to convert units and floors over to COVID units if need be. All the hospitals have also contracted with staffing agencies if needed. We are fully prepared for an increase in hospitalizations. Fortunately, our spike was expected and is with a younger healthier demographic that are not being hospitalized.
We are hoping to reach herd immunity and keep cases from spiking out of control.
We are asking people to follow the CDC guidelines : Stay away from others if at risk, wash hands frequently, socially distance and wear a mask in closed areas and where social distancing can occur.
Respectfully,
Michelle
