According to data from the Florida Department of Health, the Sunshine State’s percent positivity gradually rose from 3.91% on October 4 to 7.75% in November 4’s report.
In October, daily case totals were in the 1,000 – 2,000 range. The state reported 4,400 new cases Wednesday.
What’s driving it?
In the fall, there have been Stanley Cup celebrations, more students have gone back to school, and possibly general fatigue with COVID-19 precautions come into play.
Experts say a spike was bound to happen.
