Florida COVID numbers remain consistent
Fort Lauderdale, Florida – According to Florida’s health department, 10,892 new COVID-19 cases are reported across the state this week, a number that is consistent with the past six weeks.
That total is higher than the previous week (9,645) but virtually the same as the two weeks prior (10,890 and 10,711), according to the Florida Department of Health’s weekly coronavirus report, released Friday evening.
The state’s new-case positivity rate for the period of Nov. 26 to Dec. 2 was 2.5%, the highest since the week that began Oct. 22.
New infections and positivity rates remain far below what Florida experienced during the summer surge, which peaked in August with more than 150,000 weekly cases and a positivity rate surpassing 20%.
