Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis accused fellow politicians of stoking fear in the United States over the monkeypox outbreak. Govs. Kathy Hochul, Gavin Newsom and J.B. Pritzker — all Democrats from New York, California and Illinois, respectively — have declared states of emergency over the spread of monkeypox. “I am so sick of politicians, and we saw this with Covid, trying to sow fear into the population,” DeSantis said, “We’re not doing fear.”
