Governor DeSantis Reveals Florida's Phase One
Thursday, 30 April 2020
Yesterday, Governor DeSantis revealed Florida’s Phase 1, tagging it with his data-driven, and measured approach - Safe.  Smart.  Step-by-Step:  Plan for Florida’s Recovery.

Florida Making Progress in Flattening the Curve
Sunday, 26 April 2020
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is still formulating a plan to reopen Florida’s economy, said on Saturday that Florida’s “measured” approach to shutting down the economy amid the coronavirus pandemic has “flattened the curve.” The Republican governor set up a task force to examine reopening the economy, and he is supposed to start reviewing its recommendations next week.

During his 1.5 hour press conference held on Saturday the Governor said he is, “Not in a rush to do anything” while touting Florida’s flattening of the curve.  While 37,000 were tested in the last two days, he said that there was a reduction to 2,000 new positive cases, or 7.5%, which beat the averages in many other states that were at 25% and 30%.  Hospitalizations were down for the last 10 days, indicating a flattening of the curve in Florida.  The Governor used Cleveland Clinic in South Florida where the press conference was held as a prime example.  A week ago, the Cleveland Clinic had 54 patients with 50% in ICU and 2/3 requiring ventilators.  Today it is down to 20 patients, showing improvement with many patients being released.
