Florida health authorities reported 1,882 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, increasing the total number of people infected since the pandemic began last March to 700,564, and the state recorded an additional 10 deaths of Florida residents, bringing the death count to 14,032.

The state overturned 700,000 COVID-19 cases two days after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced phase 3 of the economic reopening and after Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Giménez unveiled new measures Saturday night to adapt the county to this new stage.

Both the new cases and the number of additional deaths recorded casualties. On Saturday, an additional 2,795 contagions and 107 people were reported dead.

The reported death figure on Sunday is one of the lowest since September 13 when eight deaths were recorded.

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.

None of South Florida counties reported additional decesses.

The death number of non-florida residents stood at 170 according to the Florida Department of Health.

The rate of new positive cases at the state level fell from 4.13% on Friday to 4.08% on Saturday.


Miami-Dade County recorded 282 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 for a total of 169,426 contagions, and no additional deaths were reported. The total since the pandemic began is 3,231 deaths. Saturday’s rate of new positive cases fell to 4.26%.

The Department of Health reported that Broward County recorded 154 contagions, for a total of 76,854 cases and no additional deaths, so the count since last March is 1,369 deaths. The rate of new positive cases rose to 3.60%.

Palm Beach had 100 new cases, for a total of 46,283 contagions and no new deaths were reported. The total number of pastures since the pandemic erupted is 1,342 in that county. Reduced the rate of new positive cases to 3.02%.

Monroe County had an additional case, for a total of 1,835 and did not record further decesses. The total death since last March is 22. Positive case rate dropped to 1.14%.


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 2,101 people were admitted with “primary diagnosis of coronavirus” in the state until Sunday at 11:01 a.m.

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

According to figures provided Saturday by Miami-Dade’s New Normal Dashboard, hospitalizations in the county dropped from 347 to 337 and the number of patients connected to respirators decreased from 74 to 67.

The average rate of positive cases in 14 days was 4.40%. Miami-Dade’s goal is to keep it below 5%. The daily rate dropped to 4.03%.

The Florida Department of Health in turn reported 43,533 hospitalizations since March.

Health authorities said that at the state level 5,260,602 COVID-19 tests have been conducted since March and of that total, 700,564 were positive (13.32%). People who gave negatives totaled 4,552,877.
