Florida is approaching 100K COVID-19 cases. Escambia County had 28 new cases reported on Sunday – 23 of the new cases were Florida residents and only one was associated with a local nursing home. The median age for 6/20 was 26.
Duval County – site of the 2020 GOP convention – had 259 new cases, the highest daily increase in the past two week. Two weeks ago, Duval only had 14 new cases.
Escambia County had a steep increase in ER visits with flu-like and COVID-like illnesses – see graph below.
How long will this uptick last? Monday reports have been typically low. What happens on Tuesday-Saturday will show whether the upward trend will continue.
The other question that county officials should be asking is: why has the median age dropped? Two weeks ago, the median age ranged from 51-61. Are the 185 new cases last week all construction workers riding in van pools to Panama City? Not hardly.
