Clarifying the Governor's Executive Order 20-72
Prohibiting Unnecessary, Non-Urgent or Non-Emergency Procedures or Surgeries
and Broward County Administrator’s Emergency Order 20-01
The FCA continues to get questions on the Governor’s Executive Order from Friday since its last Bulletin. The FCA interpretation of Executive Order 20-72 is that only medically unnecessary, non-urgent or non-emergency procedures or surgeries are prohibited. This does NOT include chiropractic care. The Governor’s latest Executive Order falls squarely in line with CMS’s announcement on March 15, 2020.
The U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services and the U.S. Health Sector Cybersecurity Coordination Center have posted a notice about a malicious website related to the coronavirus. The website pretending to be the live map for Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases by Johns Hopkins University is circulating on the internet waiting for unwitting internet users to visit the website. Visiting the website infects the user with the AZORult trojan, an information stealing program which can exfiltrate a variety of sensitive data. It is likely being spread via infected email attachments, malicious online advertisements, and social engineering. Furthermore, anyone searching the internet for a Coronavirus map could unwittingly navigate to this malicious website.
