This week Florida reached the deeply troubling milestone of over 1 million COVID cases here in our state. The Florida Democratic Party released the following statement in response:
Governor Ron DeSantis has spent the last 9 months refusing to treat COVID-19 as a pandemic and because of this attitude Florida is one of just three states to reach the milestone of over 1 million cases. We need to stop the spread of this virus. We need a statewide mask mandate. And we need Governor DeSantis to take COVID-19 seriously. Lives are on the line.
