Florida shatters record for Single-day cases - 11,000 (Plus) new COVID-19 cases

Today the Governor announced that Florida records another record breaking day with 11,458 new COVID-19 cases, shattering the 10,000 new cases, previous single-day record established on Thursday July 2nd. There are now over 190,052 confirmed COVID-19 cases as reported by the Florida State Health Department, with 3,702 death, which includes 18 fatalities announced on Independence Day itself.  Additionally, there has been 101 deaths of non-Florida residents.

Reports show that Florida, Texas, Arizona and California are the new hot spots across the US for new cases of COVID-19. 

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), stands by his decision to re-open the State and said the state would not reverse course on its reopening. “We're not going back, closing things,” he said on Wednesday. “I don't think that that's really what's driving it. People going to a business is not what's driving it. I think when you see the younger folks — I think a lot of it is more just social interactions, so that's natural.”

The climbing cases have prompted fears of further outbreaks over the July 4th weekend. In response to those concerns, Miami-Dade County announced it was imposing a curfew over the holiday weekend.

Even with these record breaking numbers, hundreds of beachgoers flocked to the open beaches to celebrate Independence Day.
