In Florida, where there is an influx of new COVID-19 case, officials are divided on what to do about it. The state has seen 2,783 new cases on Tuesday. It was the third time in a week that Florida set a new daily record.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and other Republican officials, including the President Asset, say the increase in the number of new cases was expected and is primarily the result of increased test. Florida is now in the trial of more than 200 000 people per week, more than double the number tested weekly in mid-May.

But local officials and public health experts are concerned about other statistics that show that the virus continues to spread in Florida. The state Department of Health reports that the number of people showing up in hospital emergency rooms with symptoms of the flu, and COVID-19 is on the rise. Also disturbing — the percentage of people who are testing positive for the virus is on the rise.
