Former Texas congressman Ron Paul and current Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had some strong thoughts on the frenzy of the latest COVID-19 variant. Paul, for example, asserts the Omicron variant is another deception by Democrats and health officials.

“The media coverage of this is really quite nauseating, how the propagandists promote all this,” he said.

In a new episode of him Liberty Report on Monday, Paul points to speculation about the Omicron variant being used by Democratic Party officials to justify new restrictions and government mandates. He said Africa has been successful in fighting COVID-19 and it has less infections than any other major region.

The former congressman’s co-chair, Daniel McAdams, later criticized Joe Biden’s travel ban on African countries. Paul also said Dr Anthony Fauci and other officials were “stirring the pot” with Omicron’s claims to confirm their involvement in public debates.

Meanwhile, Governor DeSantis said the Sunshine State will not impose any lockdown or restrictions amid the media frenzy about the Omicron variant. While speaking at a law enforcement conference in Orlando on Monday, Republicans said the media-driven hysteria is infringing on people’s freedoms when it comes to any variation of COVID. -19.

The governor then stressed that he would not allow Biden and his officials to lock down his fellow Floridians or destroy their jobs and businesses.

“In Florida, we won’t let them lock you up, we won’t let them lose your job, we won’t let them hurt your business, we won’t let them close your school, ‘ announced the governor. “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

DeSantis also cited South African doctors who identified the new variant as saying all its cases were mild and none of the patients required hospitalization.
