Florida health authorities makes a COVID-19 report: 2,355 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, increasing the total number of people infected since the pandemic began last March to 671,201, and recorded an additional 152 deaths of Florida residents, bringing death to 12,939.

The number of additional cases is lower than on Tuesday when 3,116 new contagions were reported.

The death figure also increased after the previous day’s 145 deaths.

This does not necessarily mean that all contagions and deaths have occurred in the last 24 hours. In Florida, deaths announced on a given day could be several days earlier because state information does not include the exact date of death.

The death number of non-residents in Florida rose to 161, according to the Florida Department of Health.

The rate of new positive cases at the state level was 4.47% on Tuesday and has remained below 10% for more than 30 consecutive days.

COVID-19 REPORTED IN MIAMI-DADE, BROWARD AND PALM BEACH

Miami-Dade County reported 459 new cases, for a total of 165,147 and 32 additional deaths, for a total of 2,955 deaths.

The rate of new positive cases was 4.52% on Tuesday, according to health authorities.

The Department of Health reported that Broward County recorded 143 contagions, for a total of 74,832 infections and 1,295 deaths, nine additional deaths. The rate of new positive cases was 2.97% the day before.

Palm Beach had 154 new cases, for a total of 44,459 contagions and 18 more dead, for a total of 1,934 death. It recorded a rate of new positive cases of 4.04%.

Monroe County reported four additional cases, for a total of 1,791 and did not report new deaths, so the total figure since last March remains at 20. The rate of positive cases was 2.46%.

COVID-19 HOSPITALIZATIONS

The Agency for the Administration of Medical Services (AHCA), which provides up-to-date information on hospitalizations at the state and condal level, reported that 2,480 people were admitted with “primary diagnosis of coronavirus” in the state through Wednesday at 10:54 a.m.

Hospitalization-related data is one of the tools authorities use to determine the level of contagion.

According to figures provided Wednesday by miami-Dade‘s New Normal Dashboard, hospitalizations in the county fell from 480,to 463 the lowest figure since last June and patients connected to respirators dropped from 124 to 118.

The average rate of positive cases in 14 days is 5.35%. Miami-Dade’s goal is to keep it below 5%. Last Tuesday’s rate was 4.52%.

The Florida Department of Health in turn reported 41,851 hospitalizations since March.

Health authorities said that at the state level 4,991,097 COVID-19 tests have been conducted since March and 671,201 were positive (13.45%). People who tested negative totaled 4,312,822.
