Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) called in to the Brian Kilmeade Show and urged the state and federal governments to work together to get more testing kits to the state of Florida as soon as possible, saying Florida could have as many as 7 or 8 times the number of coronavirus cases as has been reported.
"The one thing we've got to do in Florida, we've got to get more testing. If we had as many tests done as New York's had done... we probably would have 30 or 40,000 cases now," he said. "We need them now. We need our labs to be faster."
Sen. Scott went on to say that he thinks more people in Florida would be following social distancing measures and quarantining themselves if they knew just how widespread the coronavirus actually is in the state.
