On Friday, the Florida congressional delegation, led by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and U.S. Rep. Donna Shalala, D-Fla., called on U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Sec. Alex Azar to send more Remdesivir to Florida as the state continues to see rising numbers of patients with COVID-19.
Last week, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., sent a letter to Vice President Mike Pence and Y.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Sec. Alex Azar requesting the administration shift its approach to measuring hospital bed capacity and expand testing strategies.
Deutch and Frankel insisted the state has enough kits to test hundreds of thousands of people but only tested 23,723 people to date when they sent the letter to Azar on Thursday.
