IN FLORIDA, BUT ON HOSPITALIZATION CAPACITY

During a press conference on Friday, Florida Governor’s Ron DeSantis said the median age range for the coronavirus case in recent weeks is 37.

“I mean, I think a lot of this is voluntary compliance,” he said. “I mean, you just aren’t able to police every people, every time. And so, I think you get in this, month after month, I think people don’t get a little tired, especially in certain age groups, who may not be at risk. ”
