Mixed Health Signals

On June 24, the Florida Department of Health reported a record 5,508 positive coronavirus cases and 44 deaths.

Still, officials at large central Florida hospitals explain that Florida’s most recent coronavirus cases have come mostly from younger people who are less likely to become seriously ill or die.   Representatives from Orlando Health, a large hospital system, stated that younger people are much less likely to require ventilator support.  Their doctors have also stated that testing in central Florida has increased.
