Florida

By Devoun Cetoute

Florida reported 2,006 COVID-19 cases and no new deaths on Thursday, according to Friday’s report to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, based on Miami Herald calculations of CDC data.

The Florida Department of Health will most likely add more deaths to Thursday’s total, increasing it from zero. The state has done this in the past when it has added cases and deaths to previous days during the pandemic.

The last time the state saw no increase in deaths consistently, without backlogged deaths added later, was in early March of last year during the nascent days of the pandemic, according to CDC data supplied by the state.

In all, Florida has recorded at least 3,635,103 confirmed COVID cases and 58,608 deaths.

In the past seven days, on average, the state has added 128 deaths and 2,090 cases per day, according to Herald calculations of CDC data.

COVID-19 hospitalizations in Florida

There were 2,525 people hospitalized for COVID-19 in Florida, according to a Friday report by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, which compiled data from 258 Florida hospitals. Hospitalized COVID patients dropped by 205 from Thursday’s report, when 255 hospitals submitted data. This continues a trend of decreasing hospitalizations.

COVID-19 patients take up 4.42% of all inpatient beds in the latest report’s hospitals, compared to 4.7% in the previous day’s reporting hospitals.
