Infectious Disease Specialist Issues Dire Warning About Florida

An infectious disease specialist is warning that Florida is “heading a million miles an hours in the wrong direction” on its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Right now, we are heading a million miles an hour in the wrong direction,” Dr. Aileen Marty, an expert who helped write Miami-Dade’s reopening rules, told “CBS This Morning.”

She added, however, that people are not properly following the rules and it’s playing a role in rising cases of COVID-19 in the area.

“It’s absolutely the saddest thing, the most unnecessary situation that we’re finding ourselves in,” Marty said. “And it’s behaviorally driven.”

Her warning comes as Florida recorded 10,109 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, the highest single-day increase for the state. There are now more than 175,000 confirmed cases in Florida. (Read more from “Infectious Disease Specialist Issues Dire Warning About Florida” HERE)
