Trump declares Florida a disaster area due to virus

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump has declared Florida a disaster area because of the new coronavirus outbreak. The president acted Wednesday, one day after Gov. Ron DeSantis requested the declaration. Florida is the sixth state to receive one because of the viral outbreak. The move makes the state eligible for federal funding for emergency protective measures and crisis counseling. The declaration came shortly after the two major counties in the Tampa Bay area moved to impose lockdown orders. Restrictions have already been imposed by local officials in south and central Florida and elsewhere. The state is approaching 1,700 confirmed cases and at least 21 have died.
