A new report of Covid-19 in Florida has arisen from official sources. The health authorities reported 2,423 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, increasing total number of people infected since the pandemic began last March to 663,994, and recorded eight additional deaths of Florida residents, bringing death to 12,608.

The death rate is the lowest since last June when seven deaths were reported, according to data from the Florida Department of Health.

And the number of new contagions also decreased by ranking in the range of 2,000 additional cases, after several days of being above 3,000 infections.

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 death number of non-residents in Florida stood at 156.

The rate of new positive cases at the state level was 4.44% on Friday and has remained below 10% for 31 consecutive days, according to health authorities.


Miami-Dade County reported 296 new cases, totaling 164,086 and accounting for 2,880 dead.

The Department of Health reported that Broward County recorded 161 contagions, for a total of 74,434 infections and 1,280 deaths.

Palm Beach had 152 new cases, for a total of 44,025 contagions and 1,196 deaths.


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 2,627 people were admitted with “primary diagnosis of coronavirus” in the state through Sunday at 11:14 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 fell to 545, the lowest figure since last June, and patients connected to respirators dropped to 129.

The average rate of positive cases in 14 days is 5.92%. Miami-Dade’s goal is to keep it below 5%. Last Friday’s rate was 4.72%.

The Florida Department of Health in turn reported 41,297 hospitalizations since March.

Health authorities said that at the state level, 4,930,974 COVID-19 tests have been conducted since March and, of that total, 663,994 were positive (13.47%). People who tested negative totaled 4,259,936.
