Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced Dr. Joseph Ladapo as Florida’s newest surgeon general and secretary of Florida’s Department of Health, who has a history of going against science when it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic. DNC spokesperson Adonna Biel released the following statement:

“There has been no governor who has been more pro-COVID than Ron DeSantis and his newest hire, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, is further confirmation of that. Instead of going with a trusted advocate for science, DeSantis is once again playing games with peoples’ lives by appointing someone who has trafficked anti-vaccine and anti-mask rhetoric. The American people are ready to return to normalcy and the DeSantis playbook of prolonging the pandemic is dangerous and wreaking havoc on his own state.”
