That's a 34% increase in new cases among children in eight days.... That's a 23% increase in child Covid-19 hospitalizations in eight days.
I guess a 23% increase is good news.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

In case anyone's still following, here are the numbers:

Avg cases per day, rolling 7 days: 10,300
Avg cases per day, rolling 14 days: 10,740

Avg deaths per day, rolling 7 days: 133
Avg deaths per day, rolling 14 days: 123

Case counts are down from their highs, but so is overall testing. Positivity rate for first time testers is hovering at just under 20%. Average age of new cases has been in the low 40's for the last 2 weeks. Deaths are at record levels for both 7 and 14 day averages, and the numbers are expected to continue rising for at least the next couple of weeks. **Hospitalizations were the way to measure things, but many hospital systems have moved into damage control mode. Tele-medicine has been set up for many Covid patients to avoid hospitalizations, ICUs have been kept as clear as possible for the most serious cases, with low-level ICU-level care being given in non-ICU areas. IMO, this is actually a very good thing, because it shows that the medical establishment has adapted to keep treatment as effective and efficient as possible. It just means that certain metrics we were using to try to gauge the severity of the situation just aren't as reliable (current hospitalizations, ICU capacity).

**My hospital info is second-hand and third-hand, plus some internet research, so it may not be 100% accurate. If frontline workers could confirm/deny or just give more accurate info, that would be helpful.

Na, itís not the testing. Cuomo and Murphy killed almost 50,000 people between the two of them with far less testing. Florida only managed to kill 6000.They really have to up their game if they want to get into the big leagues.

FL has killed much more than 6k, and the fat lady hasn't even warmed up yet, but it's not a competition. The issue with FL is that they had a handle on things, and then they started prioritizing money and politics over health. In the process, they lied repeatedly, hid information, fudged data, and still refuse to take any responsibility for the deteriorating situation.

I wouldn't get excited about records at this point. It's like watching McGuire after 61. Every homer is a record, and the season ain't over yet. You'll very likely see multiples of 191 before we're done.

Not a great word choice, but you get the point.

You called it. I wasn't disagreeing with you but here it is for the you know who.  :)

FL preemptively closed testing sites from tomorrow until Tuesday. Any numbers you see next week need to be taken with one of Dan's 25 lbs bags of salt.

Take a break for a week. FL's hospitalizations are lower than they've been in a while, at 8245 current hospitalizations with the main diagnosis of Covid. However, there have been over 3300 new hospitalizations in the last 7 days, so over 4500 people vacated their beds in the last week. Either they all got better....

Some counties are twisting arms to get kids into classrooms. Letters started going out that food pickup programs will be discontinued and food will only be available to children who sign up for on-site learning (as opposed to virtual options). With many families relying on that food, they will be faced with a choice they shouldn't have to make.
