Gov. Ron Desantis has confirmed two positive cases of COVID-19 in Florida: a 20-yr-old female in Hillsborough County who recently traveled from Italy and a 60-yr-old male in Manatee County. It is unknown how the Manatee County patient contracted the virus.
The state is also monitoring 184 people to see if they have contracted the virus, and DeSantis warns that more positive cases are likely. However, the governor maintains that the "overall immediate threat to the public is low."
