The somber milestone follows the U.S. topping 4 million confirmed coronavirus cases nationwide.

DeSantis, a first-term Republican, in recent days suggested that conditions were improving in his state. During a news conference at a medical center in the city of Melbourne on Thursday, the governor said the state was heading in the right direction.

I can't help but wonder-- if this is the "right direction"-- what does he think the "wrong direction" would be?
