As COVID-19 continues to be a global issue, infection rates have risen and fallen due to vaccines, variants, and other factors.
Locations like Florida’s Orange County continue to push for more people to get vaccinated as the state of Florida goes into “crisis mode.” Today, we have some news about Florida’s infection rates.
According to Fox 35 Orlando, Florida has reported its highest one-day total of COVID-19 cases since the beginning of the pandemic. The new record high that Florida reached is a one-day total of 21,683 new cases. This record-high level of infections has led to Disney re-implementing mask requirements.
The state has become a hot spot for the virus, accounting for a fifth of the overall cases in the country. These record-breaking numbers were recorded on Friday and released today. Only one day before, Florida reported 17,093 new cases, and the figures show how rapidly case numbers are rising.
On the same day as these record-breaking numbers, Governor Ron DeSantis banned mask requirements for schools which start up again next month.
