Florida shatters daily record with 3,207 new coronavirus cases

From USA Today:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida added another 3,207 coronavirus cases Thursday, shattering the previous daily record as the state emerges as an alarming hot spot among places grappling with a resurgence of the disease.

Thursday’s new record topped the 2,783 cases reported just two days earlier by the Florida Department of Health, which had been the third record-setting total in less than a week.

There have been 85,926 coronavirus cases reported in Florida since the outbreak began and 3,061 deaths. The state reported 43 additional COVID-19 deaths Thursday.

Looks like they may have to start shutting things down to slow the spread and flatten the curve. What does their fearless Trump-suckling governor have to say?

Gov. Ron DeSantis said after Tuesday’s record high that he had no plans to pull-back on reopening efforts that he launched in May and since expanded.

“We’re not shutting down, we are going to go forward, we are going to continue to protect the most vulnerable,” DeSantis said Tuesday, adding, “the negative effects” of shutting down again would be much worse than “any gains you’re getting.”

Oh.
