The number of new hospitalizations from COVID-19 increased last week in Miami-Dade County with 210 new hospitalizations.

We also saw an increase in fatalities in Miami-Dade County with 103 new COVID related deaths last week.  That’s up from 72 fatalities the week prior.

Florida COVID-19 CASES

The number of Florida COVID-19 cases jumped up from 30,713 the prior week to 37,970 new cases last week.  New hospitalizations remained relatively flat statewide, but fatalities went up from 414 two weeks ago to 523 last week.

As you can see, the statewide fatality rate is at 1.7%.

STAY SAFE

Folks, effective on Monday, April 5th, 2021, anyone 18 years old or older can get the COVID-19 vaccine.  The more people who get vaccinated, the sooner we can reach herd immunity and put COVID-19 in the history books.

If you are a senior, diabetic, overweight, or have any other condition that makes you more susceptible to the COVID-19 virus, you should be doing everything possible to get the vaccine.

Folks, let’s take care of each other.  Wear a mask.  Practice social distancing.  And get the vaccine if you can.

God bless you all and have a happy Easter!
