The governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, signed an executive order on Monday, 3, suspending all restrictive measures against the Covid-19, including wearing masks and social detachment. “The fact is that we are no longer in a state of emergency”, justified the politician during a press conference. He acknowledged that the state has not yet finished its fight against the new coronavirus, but reiterated that the USA as a whole are registering a drop in the number of cases and deaths caused by the disease. DeSantis added that asking people who have been fully immunized to continue wearing masks could diminish confidence in vaccines against Covid-19. Despite the state government’s decision, private businesses may continue to require people to cover their nose and mouth and practice social detachment within their establishments. THE White House has made no comment on the decision yet. Florida has recorded the third largest number of Covid-19 cases in the United States, with more than 2.2 million infections and 35,000 deaths since the new coronavirus pandemic. However, the number of contaminations fell more than 13% in the last week and reached 4,885 on Sunday, 2.
