Today, the governor was joined by a president's advisor Dr. Scott Atlas to discuss the COVID-19 pandemic during a press conference at The Villages.
DeSantis reiterated that the state is heading in the right direction during this difficult time.
"The number of COVID positive patients that are currently hospitalized is down nearly 60 percent statewide from our July peek," DeSantis said.
Florida's new coronavirus cases on Monday dropped below 2,000, the lowest number since June 14 which seemed to make the governor happy.
He also stated that the state would never go through any more lockdowns. Which is music to Florida residents ears.
"We will never do any of these lockdowns again, and I hear people say they'll shut down the country, and honestly I cringe," DeSantis said.
