The Florida House of Representatives Donna Shalala, health minister during Bill Clinton’s presidency, said on Sunday that the Florida coronavirus was “out of control”.
“People are scared and I am scared for the first time in my career because there is no leadership. We just did not prevail,” Shalala said in statements to ABC.
It was therefore considered “ridiculous” to even consider reopening schools in Miami next month considering the infection data. In fact, he once again defended the limitation of economic activity in the region.
More than 80,000 new coronavirus cases have been discovered in Florida last week, but governor Republican Ron DeSantis has repeated that “we will not be returning.”
