Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich told “Fox & Friends” Monday that the world is going to have to “prepare for a second wave” of the coronavirus.

“We’re going to have to prepare for a second wave. And that means a lot more investing in testing equipment, a lot more investing in the right therapies.” Gingrich said, “And, frankly, I think a more methodical approach to this that looks at individuals, not just populations.”

Further, Gingrich praised Sweden, Singapore, and South Korea for doing “a much better job with much less economic damage.”

Gingrich currently resides in Italy, where the total number of coronavirus cases appears “to be plateauing”, he said. As of Monday, there are 128,948 infected with the virus and 15,887 dead in Italy.

There is also encouraging news that New York, the epicenter for cases in the U.S., is starting to see a decline in the number of deaths.

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
