Florida newspaper editorial board asks DeSantis to issue statewide mask order: 'We're dying here'

Source: The Hill

A prominent South Florida newspaper is urging Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) to issue a statewide mask mandate and take other actions to stop the spread of the coronavirus across the Sunshine State.

In an editorial titled “Help us out, Gov. DeSantis. We’re dying here,” The Sun Sentinel’s editorial board warned that the pandemic “continues to careen out of control in Florida.”

“Far better that you require people to wear masks in public than to continue fostering conditions that will force another shutdown,” the board wrote. “Your refusal to impose a mask order — a requirement now in effect in 32 other states — is out-of-touch with the mainstream.”

“A new Quinnipiac poll found 79 percent of Floridians support a mask requirement, including 60 percent of Republicans. If that’s not a mandate, what is?” the editorial continued.

“Your daily upbeat message is hopelessly at odds with what Floridians are going through,” the editorial said. “You make it sound like everything is headed in the right direction. But it's not.”

4. DeathSentence is killing us per orders from the top - drumpf/PUtin.

When the school situation blows up in his face in 4-6 weeks or less, and schools are closing because there's insufficient teachers, it couldn't happen to a more deserving ass. The fact that the capitol is closed "for safety", shows he knows how dangerous this is and is killing us on purpose, for the profits of the rich.
