Florida health authorities reported 2,583 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, increasing the total number of people infected since the pandemic began last March to 652,731, and recorded an additional 211 deaths of Florida residents with the disease, bringing deaths to 12,326.

For the second day in a row, the state has more than 2,000 additional cases and 200 deaths.

On Wednesday, 2,056 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were reported, and an additional 200 deaths.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone has happened 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 to 156, according to the Florida Department of Health.


Miami-Dade County reported 461 new cases, totaling 162,894 and 2,789 dead, an increase of 49 death from Wednesday.

The Department of Health reported that Broward County recorded 173 contagions, for a total of 73,869 infections and 1,258 deaths, 14 additional deaths.

Palm Beach had 110 new cases, for a total of 43,532 contagions and 1,187 deaths, nine more than the previous day.


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 2,922 people were admitted with “primary diagnosis of coronavirus” in the state through Thursday at 10:33 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 continue to drop, from 623 to 614, the lowest figure since August 27, and patients connected to respirators rose to 138.

The average rate of positive cases in 14 days increased to 6.46%. Miami-Dade’s goal is to keep it below 5%. The daily positive rate was 6.25% on Tuesday.

The Florida Department of Health in turn reported 40,807 hospitalizations since March.

Health authorities said that at the state level, 4,857,274 COVID-19 tests have been conducted since March, and of that total, 654,731 were positive (13,48%). People who tested negative totaled 4,195,528.
