Florida has flattened the curve. Our state continues to ramp up #COVID19 testing, our hospitalizations remain low, and we are on the right path to safely re-opening our economy. pic.twitter.com/hsihPWhHyF— Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) April 27, 2020
ICU bed availability in Florida hospitals has increased during the span of this pandemic. In fact, Miami-Dade, which has nearly 40% of all FL cases, had 45% of its ICU beds available as of 4/27. Thank you to all of our health care workers and systems for doing such a great job! pic.twitter.com/pNtt2aPHqm— Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) April 28, 2020
