Florida Surpasses 100,000 COVID-19 Cases

Ohio/s numbers remain shy of 50,000

Today, Florida’s Department of Health reported 2,926 new infections of COVID-19, bringing the state’s total to 100,217 confirmed cases. There were also 12 new deaths announced, raising the statewide toll to 3,173.

A Miami Herald analysis of public and non-public COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) data found that through June 3, new cases in Florida had consistently been trending up since mid-May and the trends could not be attributed solely to increases in testing.

And as bars, gyms, vacation rentals and movie theaters reopened at partial capacity in all but three South Florida counties, the number and rate of new COVID-19 cases were rising statewide — a troubling indicator that the disease could be spreading more quickly.
