Former Vice President Joe Biden said that he would lock down America again if he were to win the November election, but Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said his state will not shut down again.
Speaking with reporters while visiting Central Florida, DeSantis cited his state’s steep drop in COVID-19 hospitalizations as justifying his position on lockdowns.
“The number of COVID positive patients that are currently hospitalized is down nearly 60 percent statewide from our July peek,” DeSantis said. “We will never do any of these lockdowns again, and I hear people say they’ll shut down the country, and honestly I cringe.”
