Florida is reporting 222 more fatalities from COVID-19 and almost 14,000 new cases of the disease. Hospitals are getting crowded.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— State Surgeon General Scott Rivkees spent all week making rounds in the legislature … and faced more questions about the vaccination campaign.
— However, if you really want to find out why the vaccine program is chaotic, the man to talk to is Emergency Management Director Jared Moskowitz. He says the feds are not delivering as much as they promised as soon as they promised.
— Moskowitz spoke to members of the House Pandemic Committee right after they passed a bill to crack down on people who commit fraud during a pandemic.
— And there’s more gloom and doom in the new state budget. The chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee says 2021 will not be a fun year.
— And finally, there’s a Florida Man whose kids will apparently follow him to the Sunshine State when he leaves the White House.
