BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Those who believe COVID is fake may want to take a look at the latest Florida numbers from the Department of Health and Human Services.
Aggregating data from roughly 260 Florida hospitals, HHS says 69 pediatric admissions were logged on Monday for “confirmed” COVID-19. 48 pediatric admissions were logged for “suspected” COVID-19, bringing the one day new admission total to 117. In total, HHS reports 207 pediatric patients are currently hospitalized in Florida for confirmed and suspected COVID-19.
Pediatric is defined, in Florida, as anyone under the age of 18.
The adult situation also continues to worsen. In Florida, 2014 adults were admitted with confirmed COVID-19 on Monday, with 270 adults admitted for “suspected” COVID-19.
The total number of adult patients hospitalized for confirmed and suspected COVID-19 in Florida is now 14,962.
The Department of Health and Human Services is the go-to agency for Florida’s hospital statistics. Governor Ron DeSantis prohibited Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration from continuing its practice of releasing these numbers — on a per hospital basis every day — several months ago.
HHS also reports that 39 Florida hospitals currently have a critical staffing shortage.
