Florida COVID-19 Cases Spike To New Highs With 8,942 New Cases

The state of Florida has recorded a record 8,942 new COVID-19 cases, taking the total cases to 122,960.


Florida COVID-19 Cases Spike To New Highs With 8,942 New Cases

In the aftermath of TUI announcing they were cancelling all TUI operated flights to Florida for the rest of 2020, that decision is made even more clear as the BBC reports a record 8,942 new COVID-19 cases on June 26th for the state of Florida.

The US state of Florida has recorded 8,942 cases of coronavirus in one day, a new record number. That means a 62% increase over the previous record of 5,508 reported on Wednesday.

Florida's total number of coronavirus cases now stands at 122,960.

Here's some context to help you understand the recent spike in Florida: the number of cases reported by the state since 10 June - 56,960 - now exceeds the total recorded from the start of the pandemic, in March, through to the end of May, 56,163.

Phase 1 reopening of the state began on 18 May followed by more openings in Phase 2, which began on 5 June. But the governor says the easing of restrictions will be halted.

The number of reported deaths in the state reached 3,366, an increase of 39 since Thursday.

The Florida Governor today has said he is not planning to "roll back" Disney's current reopening plans. If cases continue to rise, it's a possibility the employee unions are going to push against the reopening.
