BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Saturday afternoon announced that health officials will now release data concerning specific nursing homes across the state where patients and/or staffers have tested positive for COVID-19.
DeSantis was the subject of significant negative reporting nationwide over the past several days when it was revealed that the Florida Department of Health was refusing to release specific nursing home information, suggesting a coverup of data that should be public.
Governor DeSantis now says that information will be released. He also said the National Guard will increase its “strike team” efforts to visit all nursing and assisted care facilities in the state to determine the level of infections, who needs help, and to get a real world vision of what is happening at the local level.
