Florida health authorities reported 2,541 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, increasing total number of people infected since the pandemic began last March to 693,040, and the state recorded an additional 177 deaths of Florida residents, bringing total deaths of Florida residents to 13,795.

Both the new cases and the number of deaths recorded casualties. On Wednesday, an additional 2,590 contagions and 202 more deaths were reported.

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 number of non-Florida non-resident deaths rose from 164 to 166 according to the Florida Department of Health.

The rate of new positive cases at the state level fell from 5.30% on Tuesday to 4.45% on Wednesday.


Miami-Dade County recorded 392 new confirmed coronavirus cases for a total of 168,272 contagions, and 36 additional deaths, for a total of 3,163 deaths. Tuesday’s rate of new positive cases fell from 5.02% to 4.44% on Wednesday.

The Department of Health reported that Broward County recorded 183 contagions, for a total of 76,329 cases and 1,358 deaths, 15 additional deaths. The rate of new positive cases fell from 5.17% to 3.16%.

Palm Beach had 123 new cases, for a total of 45,866 contagions and 22 deaths The total death since the pandemic erupted is 1,330 in that county. The rate of new positive cases decreased from 4.36% to 3.16%.

Monroe County had two additional cases, for a total of 1,813 and did not record further decesses. The total death since last March is 22. The rate of positive cases increased from 3.92% to 4.04%.


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 2,253 people were admitted with “primary diagnosis of coronavirus” in the state until Wednesday at 11:03 a.m.

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

According to figures provided Tuesday by Miami-Dade’s New Normal Dashboard, hospitalizations in the county remained stable at 388 and the number of patients connected to respirators increased from 89 to 90.

The average rate of positive cases in 14 days is 4.47%. Miami-Dade’s goal is to keep it below 5%. The daily rate dropped to 5.02%.

The Florida Department of Health in turn reported 43,128 hospitalizations since March.

Health authorities said that at the state level 5,186,646 COVID-19 tests have been conducted since March and of that total, 693,040 were positive (13,36%). People who gave negatives totaled 4,486,459.
