COVID-19 June 3rd Update

As we wait to see if protests across the country will lead to spikes in new cases, Tuesday brought a slight decline in newly diagnosed cases in the US. We’re also seeing a decline in active cases in the US. Right now, we have 1,881,205 cases, 108,059 deaths and 645,974 recoveries. While April 24th proved to be the peak day for newly diagnosed cases, May 30th was actually the peak day for total active cases in the United States. We’ve seen a steady decline in active cases since last Friday’s peak. With over 108,000 deaths attributed to COVID-19, it is the deadliest virus in the United States since the 1918 pandemic which killed an estimated 500,000 people.

Outside of the US, there are 6,463,657 cases, 382,710 deaths, and 3,077,475 recoveries. Brazil and Russia continue to struggle with spikes in new cases. 

In Florida, we have 57,447 cases and 2,531 deaths and there were 617 newly diagnosed cases Monday, the lowest daily total since last Wednesday. This is welcomed news after a spike in new cases over the weekend. On the other hand, deaths recorded in the state, 70, were the highest daily total since May 5th.

Florida continues to outperform the country as a whole. The overall positive test rate in Florida remained at 5.5% Tuesday, exactly half of the peak rate of 11%. As a reminder, the newest diagnosed cases are new cases obtained through community spread. This reinforces the importance of adhering to the warnings of public officials including social distancing and wearing masks in public.
