The Florida Department of Health recorded 13,720 new cases on Thursday and marked the third straight day of more than 400 new hospitalizations.

“Almost 7,800,” Salemi said, “that’s the highest single-day number of current hospitalizations since early August.”

The White House Task Force recommends even more testing of young adults to prevent the “silent asymptomatic spread” to family members.

During a conversation with Mayor Jane Castor on Wednesday, Dr. Jason Wilson from Tampa General Hospital said he’s observed that after Thanksgiving gatherings.

“I want to echo this really serious issue of the burden of guilt and tragedy when a family member or friend gives somebody else COVID and this is a reality that we’re facing,” Dr. Wilson said.
