Florida reports 5,557 new COVID-19 cases, most in over two months

Source: SOUTH FLORIDA SUN SENTINEL

Florida health officials on Thursday reported 5,557 people tested positive for COVID-19 in the latest results, an indication that new cases appear to be trending higher.

It’s the most infections on a daily coronavirus report since the state tallied 6,352 cases on Aug. 15.

The seven-day average number of new cases in the state was below 3,000 from Sept. 8 to Oct. 13. Since then, there have been five days over that level. Public health experts recently have expressed concern that Florida could be at risk of a new wave of infections, as much of the nation is experiencing.

Including Thursday’s results, the state Department of Health says at least 768,091 people have tested positive for the highly contagious disease since the start of the pandemic.

3. Florida Is Now Leading The Nation In Least Tests Taken Per 1000 People

So, it is amazing that Florida's numbers are increasing even though DeSantis has been doing everything to hide the number of cases, including looking to redefine when a person who died from COVID died from COVID.

5. 8 months out of work...

no restaurants,no movies. canceled transatlantic cruise,hundreds of thousands deceased, thankful that we are still alive. Not exactly what we pictured for our "golden years". All because a few numskulls in the midwest and Penn. didn't vote for Hillary. This is a never ending nightmare.
