Florida Politics reports:
Florida recorded more than 55,000 new cases of COVID-19 in the week through Wednesday, the highest seven-day total seen since the winter 2022 surge was waning in early February.
Florida’s latest case tally from the CDC, 55,390 over seven days through Wednesday, was a third higher than the week before. It tallied eight times as many cases as Florida recorded during the spring nadir in early April.
The week running through Wednesday represents the CDC’s most current data for all 50 states. Only California, with 77,000 cases, and New York, with 71,000, saw more new cases emerge during the week.
