On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) talks about how Florida can combat the rising number of coronavirus cases and avoid another lockdown.
"In the Miami area, you have a real international city and people are coming in and out from Latin America and they're getting hammered in Latin America right now with coronavirus, and so that impacts Miami substantially. But also in a lot of the agricultural communities down there around the Everglades, the governor has been very aggressive about going in and testing everyone. And so a consequence of building out the most robust testing system in the nation, which is what we've done in Florida, is that we, in fact, have a higher number of cases. And I think that now when you're looking at 15,000 cases in a day, you're past the point of just being able to contact trace. You have to become more resilient in your sanitation, you have to be effective in social distancing, and I think our people can do that. I don't think we have to go into another lockdown to socially distance, to be very aggressive on sanitation and hygiene. And then, lock up the boomers for the most part, because they're the ones who see the higher intubation rates and death rates. I think younger people are not going to have to stomach another lockdown."
