A new hospitalization record as well: https://www.tampabay.com/news/h​ealth/2​020/07/10/florida-sets-coronavirus-hos​pitalization-record-and-adds-another-9​2-deaths/

Also, the death toll is either the second or third highest so far depending on your source.

And this is with them suppressing the numbers.

Good thing Florida isn't America's retirement home or anything like that.

Don't fret, it's early and Florida Man will answer the call... that record doesn't stand a chance!

Looks like a plateau, leveling the curve, mind you, this is not a Koufax curve but more a 12 year-old Timmy Kominsky pinto league curve, but still.  2 days!

The worst of it is in Miami-Dade county.

A lot of Trump's supporters don't consider that to be part of this country let alone Florida.

It might be due to not having enough tests. I've heard anecdotal stories about people being unable to get one.

It's not incidental.

...and Disney World officially reopens tomorrow!

I feel really bad for the cast members who have no choice but to work since Florida's unemployment system screwed so many of them over.  I know several folks who never saw a dime, despite Disney providing the information directly to the state in an attempt to streamline the process for their people.

I just moved out of Florida, and while it bums me out I'm also grateful that I won't be there when things go from bad to inevitably worse.

Wow. You mean to say the largest county by population in Florida, some 2.7M, the one that has almost 13% of the population of the State of Florida, the 7th most populous county in the entire country, that it just might have a lot of COVID-19 cases?

What, are you going to tell me that Broward county has a lot of cases as well?

No, I was saying that Trump's supporters will just write off what's happening in Florida because of their (not-so) thinly veiled racist views of Miami-Dade county.

Miami-Dade has less than twice as many people as Hillsborough (where Tampa is) but over 3.5 times as many cases.

But I guess that sounded smart when you typed it.

Southeast Florida, including Broward, is being slammed. It's coming for the rest of us, but we haven't caught up yet.

But it's bad there because of it's size.  The other major counties like Broward have the same positive case rate, and if they were the same size as Miami-Dade they'd have the same amount of positive cases.  So adjusting per capita they're about the same.

So they may do exactly what you're saying, if they knew basic math they'd know they're in the same boat.

Oh of course, you and I know that.

That's why we aren't Trump supporters.

Weren't they maxing out their testing capacity?

States each seem to have a different weekly pattern.  Florida's biggest numbers have been on Saturdays of late, so tomorrow is the day to watch.

Maybe they will be the first to achieve herd immunity and sit back and laugh at the rest of us wearing masks and posting Karen videos

Florida is where our social security problem is going to get solved.
