From May 4, the day Florida opened to May 12, also nine days later, there were 5,468 cases diagnosed. That is a decrease of 330 new cases. That shows the curve is still going down.

Deaths In Florida from CV-19;
April 26 to May 3 there were 341 deaths in the eight days prior to opening

May 4 to May 11 there were 194 deaths in the 8 days after Florida opened. A decrease of 146 deaths due to CV-19.
Now you know the rest of the story, and the truth.
The whole country is looking at FL and similar states like Georgia in what is happening after re-opening. These numbers look encouraging. Is the re-opening going this well? You read the news and hear all about the expected new wave or second wave after re-opening and that states are re-opening too fast or being too aggressive. But the numbers seem good. Too good to be true? Too early to really know?

nobody knows the absolute answer to any of this yet....they're still trying to get their arms around it

Think about it...they don't even know what they don't know yet

the media hype and bits of information going around on this can drive you crazy....I try to avoid it

you know how to stay safe

I totally understand your question. It would be nice to have reports that say, for instance: 100 new cases today, 500 recovered, 1000 total cases in FL. It’s hard to tell how many new cases daily when it’s added to the total. Also, I see reports of people leaving hospitals and would like to read about people that have survived and never had to go to hospitals. I cannot find much information on people recovering at home.

Lake, Marion, Sumter Counties: Population 854,944. To date, there are 711 cases ( so your chances of getting sick are 7.11 per 100,000 ) and to date there are 35 deaths ( 3.5 per 100,000 ). On any given day, there are 12 deaths from all causes - that's PER DAY. Since we started tracking there is 1/3 of a person A DAY dying from CV19. You're far more likely to get killed driving your car.

This is the total number of cases since the beginning. It does include deaths. Yes, people do recover. So many of those cases are already recovered. Deaths are also reported separately, but are included in the number of cases we have had. Every time a new case is reported, it is added to the total.

So instead of a scary number like 42,000 we are closer to 15,000 among how many million people live in Florida? Millions

They have a we site that gives the stats state by state and in some states county by county. Sending the link was disallowed.

The cases in The Villages are listed at 78. It has been at or near this number for quite a while now so I think they are listing all reported cases but not the reduced number of cases from people who have gotten over the virus.

This website may help. 33,955 active cases. I don’t see how they come up with that number because within three weeks of getting infected you either get better or not. With that thought than 33,955 people have become infected within the last three weeks. Don’t get it. I mean these numbers and the virus.

All reports regarding epidemics seem to be total cases, like the number of cases for the 1917-18 "Spanish Flu" and the numbers bandied about in comparison to seasonal flu, automobile deaths, etc. The number of active cases can be reasonably estimated by subtracting the number of deaths and recoveries ( usually in the reports somewhere).

Unless crystal balls really work, those opinions/prognostications are just all guesswork. News outlets spinning their 24/7 wheels.

This site has sortable tables for deaths, recoveries, and new infections during the past 24 hours by state.
