Posted on 07/12/2020 9:16:06 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
The Florida Department of Health on Sunday reported 15,299 new Wuhan coronavirus cases. This is the largest number of cases reported in a single day. The record was previously held by New York when they reported 12,274 new cases, TIME reported.
The reason Florida saw an uptick in positive cases is because they also had a record-breaking number of tests that were conducted.
The state currently has 269,811 positive infections. In total, 18,271 people were hospitalized as a result of the virus. As of now, 2,576,813 people have been tested for the Wuhan coronavirus. That puts the Sunshine State's infection rate at 10.5 percent.
The number of positive cases has gone up over the last month. Last month, less than five percent of coronavirus tests came back positive. More than 19 percent of tests were positive over the past week, The Hill reported.
According to Rep. Donna Shalala (D), places like Miami are on the verge of seeing a second lockdown.
"It's out of control across the state because our governor won't even tell everybody to wear masks. At least in Miami-Dade county, everyone must wear a mask when they're outside," she told CNN Saturday night. "This is an American tragedy."
The uptick in positive cases was expected as the state doubled its testing capacity. Previously, Florida was testing 25,000 people a day. That number has since doubled to 50,000 tests per day.
As of now, the state has no mask mandate. Walt Disney World also reopened on Saturday, despite concern from local public health care officials.
Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has said he wants schools to reopen next month, despite the rising number of infections.
“We know there are huge, huge costs for not providing the availability of in-person schooling,” he said. “The risk of corona, fortunately, for students is incredibly low.”
The bar graph is from the Florida DOH — it demonstrates that positivity is way down (under 12% for first time in a long time). and that we did a ton more tests than ever before. I think this demonstrates that the falling positivity in the setting of way increased testing can be interpreted as over the apex.
given what we know about the deliberate inflation of covid numbers, and inaccurate testing kits, i am just going to say i do not trust these numbers are anywhere accurate
No one is dying! This is such a pathetic joke.
I hadnt even heard about a Trump rally in Florida.
57 deaths nationwide in last 24 hours.
Deaths were 380 today NATIONWIDE.
Average daily deaths for USA 8,000+ on any given day from all causes.
We need a vaccine for heart problems and cancer - just as likely as one that stops any coronavirus.
How much testing have they done today compared to the past?
What would really be telling is comparing the percentages of positives from previous testing to today’s testing.
Actual numbers don’t mean as much as they think they do.
How about a (number of cases)/(number of tests) graph?
Just go away.....
Three months ago Dr. FauXi and Mike Pence said that more testing would lead to a rise in cases.
Fearpers can hit the panic button and hibernate for the next six months but don’t expect me to subsidize their miserable existence.
It’s an existence, not a lifestyle.
Struck by lightning while pondering the WuhanChina virus scamdemic?
obviously a Covid death and recorded as such,
and it is Trump’s fault.
And how many of those were people dying of other ailments, and just happen to test positive for the Covid after they died so the hospitals could collect the bounty?
As of tonight at 2100 hours, FLORIDA versus NYC (which have about the same population) the ratio of BOTH hospitalizations & deaths is FLORIDA has ONE EIGTHTH as many of COVID-19 hospital patients/deaths as NYC has.
The “mainstream media” LIES LIKE A RUG to try to hurt DJT. - I predict that this 100% PHONY FARCE, like all the others, will FAIL.
I think you meant FauXiMengele
RE: Deaths were 380 today NATIONWIDE.
Post #7 above by bray gives a different number for deaths. Where
Are you guys getting your numbers from?
198 deaths per a million people for the State of Florida. Well below the average for a State that size.
FAKE NEWS!- FAKE NEWS!- FAKE NEWS!- FAKE NEWS. Everything, everywhere is "fake news".
Except this shit?
How stupid can you people be to not see that all the high scores you can't wait to post are all Republican governors?
Biden, Pelosi, Schumer all love you clowns for doing their dirty work.
My guess is the 300+ number is from worldometer — the other is probably from the CDC website which backfills data as time goes on. The CDC methodology is likely better as it attributes the day off death appropriately, where worldometer simply counts what is reported by each state. In either event, both trend lines are down,.
