We can send alerts to everyone's phone in Florida warning about the virus and how to take the necessary precautions.
In 2013, according to the Palm beach post, 93.5% of the population in Florida has a mobile phone, and surely the number has risen since then; therefore allowing the majority of the population to know and take the necessary precautions to defend themselves from the virus. This strategy would be more practical and direct as it reaches the majority of the population
The flaws with this strategy is that the population without a phone will have no clue about the virus outbreak; therefore will not be able to know about the necessary precautions needed to be taken.Additionally not everyone may get the alert as some problems may occur with the communication
However if the alerts go out with no flaws he advantages would be that the majority of the population will be aware of the virus and will hopefully take the necessary precautions to protect themselvesIt will also create a sense of urgency and implement fear; therefore making the people be more cautious of the virus.
If done correctly the alerts will be able to notify almost everyone in the state about the virus and the right precautions to take when outside. It may cause unnecessary stress and panic within the population as these messages are rare, however, this stress and panic may turn into the people taking responsibility in taking the right precautions.
