Fox News’ Ed Henry: No Biggie That Two People Died in Florida From Coronavirus Since They Were Old

Fox News anchor Ed Henry appeared a bit cavalier when discussing recent deaths from the novel coronavirus on Tuesday, highlighting that two people who died in Florida were both elderly and had recently traveled abroad so, in the end, it wasn’t “scary.”
