COVID FLORIDA: Nearly 7,000 Hospital Beds Now Used For COVID-19 Patients

Coronavirus COVID-19 Florida News


BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — While Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and his State Surgeon General speak nonsense about not testing for COVID-19, and about COVID being “hype,” hospitals are again filling up with the sick and very sick.

According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, there are now 6,734 adults hospitalized in Florida with COVID-19. The pediatric count is 180. At least 34 people died Monday in Florida hospitals from COVID-19.

The CDC has not updated the official Florida “new case” count since December 28th. We expect an update today. The Palm Beach County School District has also not updated since school ended for winter break. The total case count on December 22nd was 7,804. We are expecting a significant jump over the next several days as private schools — already in session — are experiencing massive sick-outs due to COVID-19.

We expect to update COVID numbers later Tuesday with the first round of data for 2022.
