The State of Florida had just under 35,000 reported new cases of COVID-19 last week.¬† That’s a 36% drop in new cases compared to the prior week as the Delta wave of COVID-19 continues to wane.¬†¬†Florida also reported a 26% drop in fatalities last week as fatalities dropped for the second week in a row.¬† That being said, fatalities still remain high with 1,722 reported COVID-19 related deaths last week.

MIAMI-DADE COVID-19 CASES

In Miami-Dade, there were 33% fewer reported new cases of COVID-19 last week compared to the prior week with just under 5,000 cases last week.¬† That’s the lowest number since early July.

COVID-19 CASES RISK FACTORS

Nearly 84% of all COVID-19 fatalities in Florida have been among adults 60 years or older.  Another 13% of COVID-19 fatalities have been among adults between 40 Р59.  In other words, 97% of of COVID-19 fatalities have been among adults over 40 years old.  Only 3% of the fatalities have been among younger adults under the age of 40.

Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 460,308 reported cases of COVID-19 among adults 65 and over.¬† This age group has had nearly 42,000 reported COVID-19 fatalities for a Case Fatality Rate (CFR) of 9.1%.¬† That’s one fatality for every 11 reported cases.

On the flip side, there have been more reported cases among those under 16 years old.¬† The vast majority of the group is unvaccinated as there is no approved vaccine yet for those under 12.¬† Over the course of 20 months of this pandemic, we’ve lost 24 kids under 16 years of to COVID-19. That’s a Case Fatality Rate of 0.0050%.¬† That’s one fatality for every 20,000 reported.

MIAMI-DADE VACCINATION RATE

The Florida Department of Health reports that Miami-Dade County has a population of 2.9 million people and has vaccinated 2.3 million people.¬† They claim Miami-Dade has a 91% vaccination rate among those 12 and older.¬† (NOTE:¬† We believe Miami-Dade has a high vaccination rate, but we don’t buy the 91% rate. We know that number includes plenty of foreigners who come to Miami to get vaccinated…aka vaccination tourism.)¬†¬†

The Florida Department of Health will be in Miami Springs on Tuesday and Friday at the Miami Springs Pool party room.
