Florida health expert denies Sunshine State is facing New York-style COVID-19 disaster: 'It's pretty clear'
Dr. Charles Lockwood, dean of the University of South Florida's College of Medicine, told "The Ingraham Angle" Tuesday that "it's pretty clear" that the state's current increase in confirmed coronavirus cases doesn't come close to the catastrophic effect of the virus on New York and New Jersey.
"For one thing," Lockwood told host Laura Ingraham, "our case fatality rate -- that's the number of deaths over the number of cases -- is 1.5 percent. In New York City, right now, it's 10 percent. So that's a huge difference there."
