PDF version of the summary reports – FL_County_25APR2020. The data for Escambia County is different from what FDOH reported on its dashboard. At 6 p.m. Apr 23, Escambia had 5,554 tests and at the same time on Apr 24 the total was 5,761—new tests 207. The new report shows 214 tests for April 24. The positives went from 420 to 434 – an increase of 14 or 6.8%. The new report shows 20 positives – 9.3%.

Maybe a few of the tests entered this morning were dated April 24? The reporting system will be out around 11 a.m. or noon Central daily and will capture the previous day’s totals. Inweekly will still try to verify the data.
