BEASTMODE: DeSantis Erupts Over Media’s Prediction of Florida Catastrophe

Vice President Mike Pence to Discuss Theme Park Reopening Plans in Orlando on Wednesday

Standing alongside Vice President Mike Pence, DeSantis dismissed concerns that he might be trying to downplay the coronavirus' ongoing spread in his state. "So any insinuation otherwise is just typical, partisan narrative trying to be spun".

Earlier this week, Florida's Covid-19 statistics were challenged by local and media outlets based on the claims of Rebekah Jones, a former staff member at the Florida Department of Health, who claimed she was sacked for not manipulating coronavirus data in a positive way. Notably, the Covid Tracking Project, up through May 20, has given the state's data quality a grade of A+. It's syndrome that attacks children and is associated with COVID-19, and at least two cases of it have surfaced in Florida.

Despite having similar size populations, the difference in coronavirus deaths between NY and Florida is stark.

"Most of the experts say if this is going to come back because we moved too soon, it will take several months before that happens - July, August, September, October". But it also shows a steady rate of new coronavirus cases over the last month, whereas NY has seen a rapid decline in new diagnosed cases.

DeSantis said this is effective immediately.

The governor chalked up conspiracy theories surrounding Jones and the Florida Department of Health to the media's "need for a boogeyman." . "When you do that and you overcook it, you end up getting less compliance with it".
