Florida Reports 6000+ New Cases, Spike Unabated

Click Orlando reports:

On Tuesday, the Florida Department of Health reported 6,093 new cases of COVID-19, approximately the same number as the day before, as well as 58 new deaths and 226 new hospitalizations. These new statistics bring the total number of coronavirus infections to 152,434 since the virus was first detected in the state on March 1, as well as a total of 3,505 deaths and 14,580 hospitalizations.

The state does not report the number of current patients in hospitals with the coronavirus, but rather the overall total. The state also does not share the number of individuals who have recovered from the disease after being diagnosed. The newly reported cases also depend on the number of tests administered per day, but the Florida DOH doesn’t release private lab testing in its overall total, so that percentage is difficult to determine.
