BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The number of COVID-19 cases logged in Florida increased by a record 24,753 on Tuesday. The death count rose by 4.

The latest numbers from the Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC come after the federal agencies amended almost all numbers recorded in Florida since the beginning of the pandemic. As we reported this morning, the totality of the numbers doesn’t appear to have changed, just how many cases are being allotted to each day.

The death count, which crossed the 40,000 mark earlier this week, did not decrease with the updated data.

The positivity rate in Florida is now 19.79 over seven days.

The rolling seven day average of new cases is elevated to 21,156. The rolling seven day death count is now 30 in Florida.

As we reported early, at least 2000 COVID-19 patients in Florida are so sick that they are on ventilators, and nearly half of all ICU patients in Florida are suffering from COVID-19.

The amended numbers from HHS led media and others to call on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to again permit Florida agencies to release data in near realtime. This was standard practice during most of the pandemic, but was stopped by the Governor when numbers started to decline in early summer.
