Florida Governor DeSantis orders statewide lockdown after mounting pressure

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued an order for a statewide lockdown to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Florida joins 35 other states that have done so. Several large counties are already under lockdown. DeSantis had said he preferred a local approach but changed his mind after speaking to President Trump who has called for a nationwide ’pause’. There are 6,900 cases of COVID-19 in the state.
