A day after Florida’s coronavirus outbreak prompted a travel ban on the Sunshine State, residents have been expressing anxiety over the virus.
While some people were on vacation this week, others were on their way to see family and friends.
On Thursday, CBS News found that a Florida man traveled to San Antonio to see his wife.
His trip was canceled, and he was back in Florida on Friday.
The Florida man, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told CBS News that his wife was ill but he was going to see her.
He said he didn’t have a virus.
“It’s really sad.
It’s really scary,” he said.
“I have to tell my wife that, ‘Oh, you know, I have this cold.
She was concerned because of a high rate of coronaviruses in the state, including EV-D68, according to the CDC.””
The Florida woman, who did not have a cold, told ABC News that she was worried about a virus that has hit Florida’s coast.
She was concerned because of a high rate of coronaviruses in the state, including EV-D68, according to the CDC.”
My husband and I went to San Antonios [Texas] to go to a big event for our kids and friends,” she said.
The CDC says the state has an EV-d68 case rate of 11.4 cases per 100,000 people, the third highest in the nation.
A coronaviral infection can lead to pneumonia, sepsis and death.
Florida is one of four states with no restrictions on visitors traveling to the Sunshine state.
