After an aggressive reopening, beaches and business reopening, Disney World receiving over 35,000 people into their parks -- it's no surprise that Florida's COVID-19 numbers have spiked:
Florida shattered records for any state's single-day recording of new coronavirus cases Sunday, announcing almost 15,300 new cases.
The state added 15,299 cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by coronavirus, to its constantly rising total, outpacing New York's previous daily record by more than 3,000.
Florida now has 269,000 COVID-19 cases and hospitals are becoming overwhelmed. Here's what Gov. Ron DeSantis had to say:
"There was no justification to not move forward" with the state's reopening in May, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis said Friday, according to NBC Miami. "We have a situation where you've got a lot of beds available. No major system, nobody that we've seen yet, has even gone to the surge level," he said.
So basically, hospitals are overwhelmed and more and more people are getting sick and more people are dying -- so he reopened his state because he "has enough beds."
Make it make any real sense.
