Sen. Marco Rubio is urging Americans to wear a mask during the coronavirus pandemic and focus on protecting those 65 and older.

The Florida Republican made his comments in a Thursday tweet. He wrote: "Politics has made people irrational.

“1. Until we have [a vaccine] we are going to have more infections.

“2. Over 95% of people who test positive aren’t going to die.

“3. 80% of deaths are 65+.

"4. Masks help a lot, wear one.

“Rational response?

“-Wear a mask.

“-Focus on protecting those 65+.”

In a video attached to his tweet, Rubio added: “We’ve got to do the best that we can. But we can’t close down the economy.”

Meanwhile, Florida's 13 congressional Democrats are demanding that Gov. Ron DeSantis mandate that people be required to wear masks in public.
