FLORIDA SEES COUNTRYWIDE RECORD OF OVER 15K NEW CASES IN ONE DAY: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis holds a news conference on the coronavirus outbreak as the state reported a countrywide record of 15,300 new coronavirus cases in a single day. This number significantly surpasses New York State at its peak when it reported its record 12,200 cases in a day in April. Reuters notes that if Florida was a country, it would rank fourth in the world in new cases added, behind the United States, Brazil, and India. Despite this surge in cases some businesses are continuing to reopen, as Disney World opened two of its theme parks over the weekend. DeSantis has said he has no plans on reclosing businesses or rolling back reopening, following the state’s department of education announcement that all schools will be ordered to reopen next month.
