HOSPITALIZATIONS FOR CHILDREN INCREASE

  • It was reported that almost a third of children tested for COVID-19 in the state tested positive
    • Worse yet, with schools slated to reopen soon, the numbers are continuing to rise. Florida reported a 23% increase this week in COVID-19 hospitalizations for children.

SMALL BUSINESS FUNDS FOR PERSONAL GAIN 

  • A Florida man who received almost $4 million from Trump’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) reportedly spent a good portion of the money on a Lamborghini and other lavish goods.
    • This is just one of a growing number of instances of reportedly fraudulent use of funds obtained through Trump’s PPP — a poorly designed, poorly executed program that has been rife with abuse from its start.

The state is just one example of a pattern we’ve seen across the country: the Trump administration failed to respond efficiently or effectively to COVID-19 in February and March, and as case numbers keep spiking in Florida and across the country, Americans are still living with the consequences.
