LAZY? Department Of Health Unwilling To Update Florida Death, Infection Counts On Holiday. 18,254 Dead Already.
Death Doesn’t Take Day Off. Health Department Workers Do.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Florida Department of Health announced within the past hour (7 p.m. Wednesday) that it will not release COVID-19 numbers on Thanksgiving. With more than 18,200 deaths, it appears that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has decided that Thanksgiving should be a day that Florida ignores COVID-19 and the loved ones it has killed. While death won’t be taking the day off on Thanksgiving, those who prepare the daily reports apparently will. Some employees, however, will continue to work.
DeSantis has made no public comments regarding COVID-19 in more than a week.
Here is the official statement from the Florida DOH:
“Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the Florida Department of Health will not be providing updates to the COVID-19 dashboard and COVID-19 daily reports tomorrow, November 26. The next update of these reports will be on Friday, November 27. Florida Department of Health staff, including the laboratory staff, contact tracing and other critical response teams will continue to work through the Thanksgiving holiday.
The next weekly COVID-19 Update will be issued Friday, November 27.”
