COVID-19 cases in Florida they are finally coming down from the beginning of the global pandemic.

Florida health authorities reported 1,736 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Monday, increasing the total number of people infected since the pandemic began last March to 665,730, and recorded an additional 34 deaths of Florida residents, bringing the deaths to 12,642.

2,423 additional cases were reported on Sunday and after several days of being above 3,000 infections.

The death toll rose against the reported the day before of only eight dead, according to data from the Florida Department of Health.

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 158.

The rate of new positive cases at the state level was 3.91% on Sunday and has remained below 10% for more than 30 consecutive days, according to health authorities.

COVID-19 IN Miami-Dade, BROWARD AND PALM BEACH

 Miami-Dade County reported 213 new cases, for a total of 164,299 and 14 additional deaths for a total of 2,894 deaths. The rate of new positive cases was 4.18% on Sunday, according to health authorities.

The Department of Health reported that Broward County recorded 91 contagions, for a total of 74,525 infections and 1,284 deaths, four additional deceases. The rate of new positive cases was 2.58%.

Palm Beach had 114 new cases, for a total of 44,139 contagions and three more dead for a total of 1,199 death. It recorded a rate of new positive cases of 2.99%.

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 2,628 people were admitted with “primary diagnosis of coronavirus” in the state until Monday at 11:04 a.m.

The average rate of positive Covid-19 cases in 14 days was 5.48%. Miami-Dade’s goal is to keep it below 5%. Last Sunday’s rate was 4.18%.

The Florida Department of Health in turn reported 41,374 hospitalizations since March.
