The Miami Herald reports:
Over the weekend, Florida didn’t merely break its single-day COVID-19 case record — the state shattered it, according to numbers reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Monday.
The CDC halved the weekend data sent by the state of Florida, 56,633 new cases, and put 28,316 new cases Saturday and 28,317 new cases Sunday. Either number blasts the state past the previous high of 23,903 established on Friday by 18.5%.
Along with that infection record, the state set another record, 13,977 current hospitalizations, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
