Florida Department of Health Updates New COVID-19 Cases, Announces Thirty-Five Deaths Related to COVID-19 ~Florida has second-highest number of test results reported in one day with a positivity rate that remains under 12 percent for second day~    TALLAHASSEE —Today, the Florida Department of Health (DOH) reported the second-highest number of test results received in one day, in addition to a steady positivity rate for new cases that remains under 12 percent for the second consecutive day. On July 12, 112,624 test results were reported to the state and 11.51 percent of new cases** tested positive.   DOH, in order to provide more comprehensive data, releases a report on COVID-19 cases in Florida once per day. The DOH COVID-19 dashboard is also providing updates once per day. The state also provides a report detailing surveillance data for every Florida county, which is available here. In order to make the daily COVID-19 report easier to download and more accessible, the daily report will now separate case line data in a separate PDF. Both reports will continue to be updated daily. The case line data report is available here

The elderly and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems and diabetes are more likely to develop serious illness. Wash your hands with soap & water. Cover your coughs & sneezes with your arm, not your hands. If you're sick, stay at home & avoid crowds.
