Florida Coronavirus Cases Spiral Out of Control, Threatening Return of Major League Sports

Is Orlando’s sports-centric money grab going to come back to haunt them?

Folks, we are not out of the woods yet.

America appears to be slipping ever further into the second wave of COVID-19, somewhat as predicted.  That is to say that we all knew that a second wave was coming, but the timing and the intensity of it have been rather shocking.

States such as Florida and Texas, who were among the first to push to restart their economies, are now in the midst of a harrowing uptick in cases that threatens to bring those fiscal dreams screeching to a halt.

Despite beach closures ahead of Fourth of July weekend to prevent large crowds from congregating, there were 2,418 new cases of coronavirus in Miami-Dade County on Saturday.

Local officials were growing concerned.

Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber chastised residents for “not listening” and refusing to adhere to social distancing protocols and mask mandates that have been in effect for weeks.

“For some people, they’re listening to mixed messages from Washington and they’re deciding they don’t need to wear a mask,” Gelber told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto in an interview on “Cavuto Live,” Saturday.

Orlando, Florida is set to play a major role in the return of major league sports to America in the coming weeks, as teams from several different sports are set to gather at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports complex.  The move feels like a savvy plan for the tourism-heavy economy of Central Florida to recoup at least some of their COVID-related losses, but, should the coronavirus continue to spread at the rate that it has in recent days, this dangerous decision could haunt Orlando for decades to come.
