Looking at our zip code, we had 42 new cases last week. As you can see in the chart below, it’s still relatively low from the highs of July, but the chart is inching back up. We had a 45% increase in new cases locally over the last 7 days. That puts the total number of COVID-19 cases in zip code 33166 at 1,829 since the start of the pandemic. We estimate Miami Springs has had 1,006 cases of the coronavirus during this pandemic.
ESTIMATE: Over 1,000 cases in Miami Springs
Miami-Dade County is also showing an increase in the number of new cases in the last 7 days. There were 3,061 new coronavirus cases reported in the last 7 days. That’s up from 2,628 cases reported the prior week. Obviously, we are still much lower than we were in July where we had in excess of 20,000 cases per week.
Miami-Dade County hospitalizations due to COVID-19 remain relatively low with 101 new hospitalizations.
Statewide, we’re seeing the number of new cases relatively stable at under 18,000 new cases per week.
The number of new fatalities from COVID-19 dropped last week to 655 deaths. That’s the lowest number since the week ending July 12th.
This week will be a big test as schools re-open and thousands of kids, teachers, and administrators return to on-campus learning. We hope everyone stays safe during this big step in returning to normalcy.
