Default Florida Gov. Rick Scott Gives Adult Number Instead of Meningitis Hotline

I don't think this was the "relief" he meant...

Florida Gov. Rick Scott Gives Adult Number Instead of Meningitis Hotline

Quote:
Florida Gov. Rick Scott mistakenly gave out the number for an adult phone line when he tried to provide the number for the toll-free meningitis hotline at a news conference Tuesday.

Scott was at a Cabinet meeting when he directed Floridians to the hotline's 866 number, but he got his numbers mixed up, according to WUSF News.

When WUSF posed the number online, they were notified by a reader that the number Scott gave directed them to a very different service.

“Hello boys, thank you for calling me on my anniversary," a woman's voice says in a recording.

A spokesperson for Scott said he inadvertently gave out the wrong number.

The correct number for the Florida Fungal Meningitis Hotline is 866-523-7339.
