Florida’s weekly COVID update: 11,454 cases and 280 deaths reported

·3 min read

The Florida Department of Health on Friday announced 11,454 new resident cases of COVID-19 and 280 deaths since June 4.

The state has recorded a known total of at least 2,344,321 coronavirus cases and 38,009 deaths since the pandemic began last spring.

These totals do not represent non-Florida resident cases and deaths — people who either contracted the disease or died from it while being in Florida — as the state stopped reporting those metrics in late May. At that time, there were 744 additional non-resident deaths and 43,535 non-resident cases, cumulatively.

The state’s 7-day percent positivity decreased from 3.6.% to 3.4%.

More than 8.6 million Floridians have completed the two-dose series of Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna or have completed Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine. Another 1.8 million have completed their first vaccine dosage, bringing the total number of Floridians who have been fully or partially vaccinated at 10.4 million, or 53 percent of Floridians who are 12 and older.
