Per DeSantis, the state’s Speaker of the House and the Senate President are supportive of his $25 million coronavirus budget request. DeSantis believes Florida could also get a minimum of $27 million in federal dollars.

DeSantis also gave a brief update on one of the four coronavirus cases in Florida.

A 60 year old patient who was hospitalized in Manatee County for coronavirus is out of the hospital and is self-isolating, according to DeSantis. Five healthcare workers caring for the patient were tested for coronavirus and the results were negative — but they will still self-quarantine for 14 days.
