DeSantis: ‘Florida Has Flattened the Curve,’ ‘Every Field Hospital’ in Florida ‘Sits Empty’

‘Every field hospital in the state of Florida right now sits empty and that’s a good thing’

EXCERPT:

DeSANTIS: “Right now, as of last night, we had about 730 people statewide in the ICU. People said our hospitals are going to be overrun. We have actually increased hospital bed space and ICU bed space during the pandemic. So there were fewer beds available in Florida in February than there are now. So Florida has flattened the curve. People have done a great job. I think we understand that you can do both, you can continue to fight COVID-19, but also get people back to work and have society function again. And Brian, I never did draconian orders here like you see in some of these other states where dad would get arrested or get cited for taking his daughter to the park. That doesn’t work. We have never done that. We have been very I think reasonable with the people of Florida and they have responded."
