3rd consecutive record day for positive COVID rates in FL.

And itís not even close.

14 June 2581 Positive cases
13 June 1902 Positive cases
12 June 1698 Positive cases (precious record was in April)

Can that be explained solely as a function of more testing? I doubt it.

2. the important data is hospital bed use, ICU and ventilators use, covid positive

 

results can mean little without the other data points

3. That's correct. Also, the percent positive. The Orlando Sentinel reported 94.6% negative.

That means we were over 5% positive which is a red flag.

Ron DeSantis decided in late May to stop reporting hospitalizations. I wonder why (insert sarcasm)

Imkokalee, FL (SW Fl) near Naples is emerging as a hot spot according to one report I read.

Hospitals in Palm Beach are starting to see an uptick according to a blurb on local news last night.

4. once we see Florida hospitals over run, then the blame game happens, otherwise data

 

can be hidden and manipulated. We also know when COVID gets into the thousands of over 55 Floida communities, it will be grusome

5. Publix today

About 50% of the customers wore masks - all employees had masks on, thankfully.
The mask-less set likes to give us with masks a look as they pass by, hope that's all they're giving.

On the subject of Publix, since this a Florida group; What's going on withe their supply chain?
All the other markets have been stocking paper goods for some tine now - not our local Publix - four months now of empty shelves.
Today, many of their cold cuts ran out. Now I understand and am well aware of the processing plants issues, but again, other stores seem to coping better.

We've been going elsewhere for many basic items that we used to purchase at Publix. That creates habits. Anyone else seeing a decline in Publix operations in Florida?

6. These charts should provide a better viewpoint of the data

Boils down to:

1) Hospitalizations, despite a brief uptick, are still trending downward
2) Younger age groups are the bulk of newer infections. Younger age groups don't appear to need hospitalization anywhere near as much as older ones.
3) Testing has increased consistently but positive rates have ticked up to average over 5% over the last week.

Those are good signs...for now. Trends are what is important and a few major factors are involved:

A) Memorial Day weekend
B) BLM Protests (last week+)
C) Reopening of Universal/SeaWorld (1st week of June)
D) Restaurants, retail, bars opening at full capacity now
E) DisneyWorld reopening - w/reduced attendance - July 11-14






Progression by Age Group

7. This is good, but I worry the younger people will infect the older ones and we will be back to

a hospitalization crisis.

8. That's a huge concern for me, too

which is why precautions in the home are still paramount.
