Florida keeps setting records for COVID-19, and Gov. Ron DeSantis keeps urging people to stop focusing on all those new cases.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— There have now been more than 206,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus exposure in Florida. an increase of 60,000 in the past week. Fatalities are now at least 3,880, also an increase of more than 300 over the past week.
— DeSantis is determined to continue reopening the state for business and tourism and insists that theme parks in Central Florida are taking so many precautions that they’ll be some of the safest places in the state. But in South Florida, officials head in the opposite direction. The Mayor of Miami Dade is issuing an emergency order shutting down dining rooms and gyms to try to halt the spread of coronavirus.
— One of the best things to come out of the COVID-19 crisis — parody songs. Remember Paul Simon’s “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover?”
— Checking — in with a couple of Florida Men. One robbed a pizza guy and pooped his pants when he saw the cops. The other pushed an 86-year-old man out of an elevator — in the name of social distancing.
