Florida’s Governor made a surprising claim about the Super Bowl that raises serious questions

The Chinese coronavirus has health officials around the globe scrambling to solve the crisis.

Massive sporting events have been canceled for the first time in decades.

And Florida’s Governor just made a surprising claim about the Super Bowl that raises serious questions.

Ron DeSantis narrowly defeated Andrew Gillum in his bid to become Florida governor in 2018.

Since then, their paths have diverged.

Gillum entered rehab after a bizarre episode in a Miami hotel room, and DeSantis has seen his popularity increase among Floridians.

In light of the Chinese coronavirus outbreak that has ground the world economy to a halt, DeSantis has joined other governors and local health officials in enacting lockdown procedures.

South Florida is one of the nation’s coronavirus hotspots with over 4,000 cases, and DeSantis made a surprising claim about the Super Bowl that recently took place in Miami.

DeSantis said, “The numbers are pretty stark. I think this thing was circulating during the Super Bowl. Now, Miami’s rate of cases is a lot higher than statewide.”

DeSantis believes that the higher concentration of cases in South Florida is due to all the out-of-towners who descended on the area for the NFL’s annual spectacle.

Super Bowl LIV took place on February 2nd, and we know that the coronavirus appeared in Wuhan, China somewhere in Mid-November.

Instead of being forthright about the coronavirus, China lied and obfuscated.

They told the World Health Organization (WHO) that the virus was not transmitted from human to human contact, and they allowed 5 million Wuhan residents to travel freely.

So by the time the Super Bowl came around, many people had likely been carrying the disease around the globe, and South Florida was obviously a major destination.

The effects of the coronavirus on sports entertainment have been particularly stark.

The NFL concluded its season before it had the chance to be canceled, but free agency was conducted differently.

Teams weren’t allowed to meet with prospective players, so they couldn’t perform physicals on players with injury concerns, which cost the players significantly.

Also, the NFL draft will be conducted remotely, and there’s been some talk of potentially playing the 2020 season without fans in the stands.

Americans could get really restless if the coronavirus threat hasn’t subsided by the fall, and pro and college football are adversely affected.

Will the NFL play a full season in 2020?
