Super Bowl LIV might have played a role in the spread of the novel coronavirus’ in South Florida, according to Gov. Ron DeSantis.
The Florida Gov. believes the virus was “probably circulating” in Miami-Dade County when more than 60,000 packed into Hard Rock Stadium for the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.
On Monday, DeSantis signed a “Safer at Home” executive order to ensure that residents in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe counties were staying home and limiting social interaction to flatten the curve and stop the spread of the virus.
According to the latest numbers from state health officials, the state of Florida has 7,764 positive COVID-19 cases with over 100 people already dead.
