    If our wonderful governor Rick moron Scott didn’t cut the budget so badly the local state lab with a biological defense coordinator would not have been forced to close the accurate information would have been known sooner. The tests they use in the field are not always accurate.

    You do know that you could have googled the information. You obviously have internet access.
