The world is currently battling with the coronavirus pandemic. And every day, the countries across the world are breaking the number of cases that come up in 24 hours. And one of them is Florida that has continued its morbid streak of breaking coronavirus records. The country reported 9,585 new cases of COVID-19 this Saturday, the state’s Department of Health confirmed.
Florida’s Saturday tally surpassed Friday’s record of 8,942 cases. And thus this has brought the Sunshine State’s total to 132,525. Reportedly, Florida has 40,000 new infections over a week that has led to an alarming situation in the country. Also, 24 new deaths were reported on Saturday. Thus, the total number of deaths stands 3,390 now.
We had earlier got reports of people walking and chilling on the beaches of Florida when the lockdown was relaxed. The people continued to spend their free time relaxing on the beaches without taking care of the social distancing norms.
But, in an attempt to control the resurgence, the state has issued an immediate shutdown of alcohol consumption at the bars. Miami also took this a step further by closing the beaches and parks.
However, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has continued to resist making face masks a statewide mandate. But, we would advise you to stay indoors until the situation is brought under control.
Coronavirus has forced us to bring changes to our lifestyle. And social distancing is the only vaccine that can keep us secured. We would recommend you spend more time with your family and share special moments with them. Stay home, stay safe!
