Florida adds more than 3,000 new daily Covid cases, most since mid-October – NBC 6 South Florida

More than 3,000 new COVID-19 cases were reported in Florida on Monday, the most in a single day in the state since mid-October.

The 3,067 new cases reported by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention mark the first time since October 13 that the state has surpassed 3,000 in a single day.

Since the pandemic broke out last year, Florida has had a total of 3,720,146 reported cases.

Despite the increase in cases, the positive rate in Florida remains low. Latest report from Florida Department of Health Friday release showed a 2.6% positivity rate from last week, up slightly from a few weeks ago but far below the 20% positivity recorded during this summer’s Covid surge.

Florida’s Covid death toll reached 62,026 on Friday, after 36 new virus-related deaths were reported last week, according to the Department of Health.

About 70% of eligible people in the state have been vaccinated, the report said.
