Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “1 in 3 U.S. Covid Cases Occurs in Florida or Texas: White House” – below is their description.
Florida reported 21,683 new cases on Friday, breaking a daily record for the entire pandemic, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The state’s previous one-day record was more than 19,100 in early January, according to CDC data. As the highly infectious delta variant has spread around the U.S., new infections in Florida have skyrocketed over the last month, from a low near 1,000 new daily cases last month.
Florida, the third most populous state, now accounts for about one in five new virus infections in the entire U.S., making it the country’s new epicenter for the outbreak.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
