(TELESUR) – With over 10,000 new daily cases, Florida has become the country’s new epicenter.
As of Monday, the country had reported 3,961,556 confirmed cases and 143,835 deaths. With over 5,000 deaths and 10,000 new infections, Florida is the new nation’s virus epicenter, along with Texas and Arizona.
Nevertheless, Governor Ron DeSantis and other authorities ordered the reopening of schools, which is the reason he is being sued by Florida’s Teachers Association.
Miami County Mayor Carlos Gimenez and Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran are being sued as well.
Plaintiffs claim that this southeastern state’s Constitution specifies that schools must ensure a “healthy and safe” environment, a requirement that can’t be met now for “the virus resurgence is exceptional and out of control.”
