COVID Florida Update: Cases, Deaths, Vaccines


Florida reported 91 more deaths and 2,125 more cases of COVID-19 to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday, according to the Miami Herald’s calculations of CDC data.

According to the Herald’s analysis, all but 40 newly reported deaths, or about 56%, have been since November 4. About 35% of those newly reported have died in the past two weeks, according to the analysis.

In total, Florida has recorded at least 3,695,641 confirmed cases of COVID and 61,630 deaths.

The CDC did not release Florida’s COVID figures on Friday and Sunday due to the Thanksgiving holiday, causing an artificial seven-day average of cases and deaths compared to the current state average.

Looking at these averages, over the past seven days, the state has added 69 deaths and 1,616 cases per day on average, according to Herald’s calculations of CDC data.
