Florida Sets New Coronavirus Case Records 3 Days In A Row

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis

The Tampa Bay Times reports the state of Florida has set new single-day records for new cases of coronavirus three days in a row.

On Thursday, the state recorded 1,698 new cases. On Friday, it was 1,902 cases. On Saturday, it was 2,581.

The state’s recorded infections now total 73,552, and the number of deaths stands now at 3,016.

A Miami Herald analysis of public and non-public COVID-19 data found that as of June 3, new cases in the state had consistently been trending up since mid-May and the trends could not be attributed solely to increases in testing, which had been inconsistent and sometimes declining during that period.

But keep opening up the state, Gov. DeSantis.
