Florida has hit a new Record for Most Confirmed Covid-19 Cases in one day

The state of Florida has broken its record for the highest number of Coronavirus cases reported in one day since the start of the pandemic.

The state department of health has reported 1,698 new cases of COVID-19 infections in just one day. Almost a 20% increase than the previous high of 1,419 cases recorded.

There are a total of 3,207 new cases in Florida and at least 86,000 recorded cases and at least 3,000 deaths since the outbreak started in Florida.

Florida also has completed over 1.3 million tests and  5.3% have come back positive.

According to DailyMail

Florida has recorded its highest number of new COVID-19 cases in a single day throughout the entire pandemic - as new projections show the state could become next large epicenter and risks being 'the worst it has ever been'.

The number of new coronavirus cases surged to 3,207 on Thursday, bringing total infections across the state to nearly 86,000, according to Florida's health department data.

The daily case count surpassed the previous record set on Monday when more than 2,700 cases were confirmed.

Florida's daily death count increased by 43 on Thursday, bringing the state's total number of fatalities to just over 3,000.

The state's total number of hospitalizations over the pandemic is now at 12,577.

At least some of the increase reflects expanded testing especially among people who are younger and without symptoms.

While the number of deaths per day is not rising, the percentage of new positive tests is, hitting 8.8 percent on Thursday, compared to 5.5 percent the week before.

New cases across the state have been spiking ever since Memorial Day after large gatherings were held and as pandemic-related restrictions continue to ease up across the state.

The easing of restrictions has accompanied new outbreaks across Florida and has already forced some local leaders, including in Tampa and Miami, to halt reopenings.
