Ron DeSantis, center, tours decontamination units at a COVID-19 testing site with Sean Harrington, of Battelle Critical Care Decontamination System, right, at Hard Rock Stadium, during the new coronavirus pandemic in Miami Gardens, Fla. Battelle decontaminates N95 masks used by health care workers and first responders. DeSantis, one of Trump’s closest allies, said at a news conference that one of the biggest problems the state faced when trying to obtain personal protective equipment is that much of it was manufactured in China and is slow to arrive. “All this stuff should be made in the United States and not in China. We don’t want our health destiny resting in the hands of a communist dictatorship,” DeSantis said. “We would certainly welcome any of the manufacturing of the masks, the PPE kits, whatever you are doing. Come to Florida.” (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky, Pool)
