DeSantis has stated Florida is not going to implement the healthcare-worker vaccine mandate, which he believes would sideline nurses who’ve pure immunity to COVID-19.
“In other states they fired nurses who are not vaccinated. Many of them have natural immunity from prior infections. So they’re actually bringing back to work nurses who are COVID-positive. They are vaccinated but we know that’s not stopping it … Meanwhile the unvaccinated, likely immune from prior infection, healthy nurses are on the sidelines, fired?” DeSantis stated.
DeSantis additionally fired a shot on the president’s chief medical advisor, Anthony Fauci, who initially denied to Congress that the National Institutes of Health had funded gain-of-function analysis on bat coronaviruses in Wuhan, China, earlier than later admitting and defending it.
“Fauci funded them at the Wuhan lab and he lied about it. And why is he not being prosecuted for lying to Congress?” DeSantis requested.
