Coronavirus cases continue to climb and we’re grateful for the hard work the State of Florida has done in creating the mass testing centers at Hard Rock and Marlins Stadiums.


As of Sunday morning, March 29th, the State of Florida has confirmed 4,246 cases of the Coronavirus (COVD-19).  There are 594 hospitalizations in the State of Florida and 56 deaths.  That calculates to a 14% hospitalization rate.  In other words, 86% of the people who are confirmed to have Coronavirus in the State of Florida have not needed to be hospitalized.  The mortality rate within the State of Florida is 56 out of 4,246 confirmed cases.  That’s a 1.3% mortality rate or conversely a 98.7% survival rate within the State of Florida.


In Miami-Dade County, the number of confirmed cases has jumped to 1,192.  That represents 28% of the state’s total cases.  The hospitalization rate is 92 out of 1,192 or 8%.  That means 92% of confirmed cases have not needed hospitalization.  The mortality rate is 3 deaths out of 1,192 cases or 0.25%.


Miami-Dade has 1,192 confirmed cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  New Orleans, Louisiana has 1,298 confirmed cases.  However, New Orleans has 70 deaths vs Miami’s 3 deaths.  New Orleans has a 5% mortality rate vs Miami-Dade’s 0.25% rate.  So why is New Orleans so much higher than Miami’s?  The answer is, we don’t know.  But, there are a few reasons why this could happen.  1 – Miami-Dade is doing a better job testing than New Orleans thus identifying more people than New Orleans.  2 – There might be more people who smoke in New Orleans and/or have more underlying conditions.  Possibly?  3 – The Miami-Dade County healthcare system is superior to that in New Orleans.  There’s no doubt Miami-Dade County has a very robust healthcare system.  We are blessed to have some of the best doctors in a wide range of specialties from around the world.  4 – The warmer weather helps to fight off the virus.  Of course, there’s no scientific proof to this and it’s only speculation. Again, this is something that will be studied thoroughly after this crisis is over, but we are blessed to have such a low mortality rate locally compared places like New Orleans with a similar number of confirmed cases.  We pray our mortality rate continues to stay low.
