FDA chief: it’s too early to judge the safety of the Republican Convention in Florida

Recently, this state has seen an increase in the incidence of COVID-19.

A senior Trump administration health official said Sunday that it is not yet clear whether it is safe to hold the Republican Party Convention in Jacksonville, given that record rates of coronavirus are being recorded in Florida.

Republicans moved most of the Convention’s events to Jacksonville, after disputes over security issues with North Carolina’s Democratic Governor Roy Cooper.

Amid a record number of positive coronavirus test results in Jacksonville and throughout Florida, the head of the food and drug Administration (FDA), Stephen Hahn, was asked whether it would be safe to hold a contented large-scale forum in seven weeks.

“I think it’s too early to talk about it, “Khan said, speaking on CNN’s “State of the country” program.

We need to see how the situation unfolds in Florida and other places in the country,” he added.

President Donald Trump relies on mass campaign rallies during his campaign and does not agree to wear masks and observe social distance measures at campaign events.

In Jacksonville, whose mayor is a Republican, Lenny Curry, recently introduced a mask regime in public places after an increase in the incidence of diseases.
