The governor's decision comes a day after Trump Warns Big Death Toll Is Coming

The White House projects 100,000 to 240,000 deaths and Doctors Deborah Birx and Anthony Fauci pleaded for social distancing.

"No magic bullet. No magic vaccine or therapy. It's just behavior," says Dr. Birx.

"This is tough. People are dying. It's inconvenient from a societal standpoint, from an economic standpoint. But this is going to be the answer to our problems. So let's all pull together and make sure as we look forward to the next 30 days , that we do it with all the intensity and force that we can," said Dr. Fauci.

DeSantis somehow knew better.
