Florida breaks record in cases, hospitalizations; over 1M vaccine doses thrown away in 10 states: Latest COVID-19 news
UpTime:2021-08-02Count:17

Florida on Sunday broke its record for coronavirus hospitalizations a day after the state recorded the most daily COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic in early 2020.


More than 10,200 people in Florida are hospitalized with confirmed COVID-19 cases, according to data reported to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. The previous record of 10,170 hospitalizations was from July 23, 2020, more than a half-year before vaccinations started becoming widespread, according to the Florida Hospital Association. Florida leads the nation in per capita hospitalizations for COVID-19.


Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare's chief communications officer said the hospital has 70 patients in its COVID-19 unit — an increase of 11 in just two days since Friday and the highest the hospital has seen since the start of the pandemic. The vast majority of the patients hospitalized now, according to Stephanie Derzypolski, are unvaccinated.


"This is the most we've ever had," said Derzypolski, adding that their previous highest number of hospitalizations was 51.


Coronavirus cases are climbing across the country, but there are dramatic differences in the intensity of the outbreaks.


Tennessee reported 356 cases in its last week of June and 12,765 cases in its last week of July, resulting in a 3,486% increase. In California, cases were up 1,078%. And in Louisiana, cases were up 1,043% but on a per-person basis, the state is reporting cases more than 10 times faster than nine different states.
