miami hundreds in line 250 dollar gift cards

Hundreds of people braved cold temperatures Tuesday morning while waiting in line early for a chance at a free grocery gift card in Miami, CBS local reported.

“We’re urging Congress in a bipartisan fashion to pass a new CARES ACT,” said Francis Suarez, Miami Mayor on Fox News. “We did not get direct funding from the federal government because our population was slightly below an arbitrary figure of five hundred thousand, which meant that instead of us getting 80 million dollars, this is what we should have gotten based on our population. We ended up getting eight million dollars. So those lines that you’re seeing are us putting our funds to work immediately for the neediest people in America.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
