Miami-Dade reports the lowest number count of new COVID-19 infections since mid-June

DORAL, FL – Miami-Dade reports the lowest number count of new COVID-19 infections for the second consecutive day since mid-June, according to the Florida Department of Health.

Diario las Américas reported that on Monday, August 17, 719 new cases were confirmed, while on Sunday, August 16, 900 new cases were reported. 

The number count of Monday reflects 181 less cases compared to Sunday. Both days are considered to have shown the lowest number count of new infections since mid-June. 

But statistics look quite different when referring to the number of deaths in the county, since Miami-Dade reported the death of 24 people in 24 hours, 14 more than yesterday, August 16.

Regarding Florida the scenario seems to have taken a positive turn as well in new cases and deaths. 2,678 new cases were confirmed meaning 1,101 less than yesterday, as well as 87 deaths in 24 hours, 20 less than yesterday.

A similar trend was observed on Sunday, August 16, when the numbers of deaths in the state was lower than that of Saturday with 97 less deaths. 

With this, Florida reaches 576,094 cases (between residents and non-residents) since the pandemic began, including people who overcame the disease and those who passed away from it.

According to statistics, more than 95% of those infected manage to overcome COVID-19.

It should be noted that Florida does not report the number of people recovered from the virus, as most states in the country do, mainly because this state doesn’t keep a record of those who have managed to defeat the virus.
