BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — You know the situation is bad when the Florida Department of Health’s official report paints a dire picture of the COVID-19 situation in the state. Under the control of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the DOH’s numbers have always been questionable. But the just-released report is bad as published.
Florida officially logged 110,477 NEW COVID-19 cases over the past seven days, with monumental jumps week-to-week. Notably: 11,797 new cases were logged the week of June 18th. This week’s report is almost ten times the June 18th report.
The official positivity rate for Florida is also at crisis levels. It’s 18.1 percent, according to the Florida Department of Health. It was just 3.9 percent in the June 18th report.
Unsurprisingly, Florida is not breaking out weekly death numbers, but the CDC is. It reports a seven day moving death average in Florida of 45, with 75 deaths reported on July 29th — the most recent day with available data.
The official Florida death count is 39,079.
The shot situation in Florida is also bad. Only 61 percent of Floridians eligible for the vaccine have received the vaccine.
