COVID-19 update: Location of all confirmed cases in Florida

by | Apr 13, 2020

With the state conducting more tests and finding fewer cases of the virus with each passing day, we decided to bring you the most up-to-date report on all cases across the state.

According to the Florida Department of Health (DOH), the state now has 21,019 confirmed cases with an additional 2,841 people hospitalized in Florida as a result of the virus. The new total includes 20,394 Florida residents and 625 non-Florida residents, with nearly 200,000 tests having been administered across the state.

As of 6 p.m. Monday, 1,124 new cases were confirmed with 38 new deaths reported. To date, Florida has reported 499 coronavirus-related deaths.

Most of the new cases continue to appear in South Florida, an area of the state where testing continues to grow. At the end of the reporting period today, Southwest Florida reported a total of 1,182 cases. Miami-Dade County currently has the most cases, with nearly 8,000 confirmed cases and 97 virus-related deaths. Other areas, like Hollywood (953) and Hialeah (883) follow closely. Areas in Central Florida — mainly Orlando (742) and Tampa Bay (519) — have also become growing hotspots for the outbreak.

The DOH has been keeping track of the data in a daily chart that lists each city. News 6 organized that data into an easy-to-read, color-coded map that lists each city and how many patients have been identified there.

Every case identified in Florida is marked on the interactive map with a first aid kit icon. If the icon is gray, that means the city has 1,000 or more cases, yellow means between 500 and 999, black is for 100 to 499, a red icon means the number is between 50 and 99, green indicates 20 to 49 cases and blue is used for anything 19 and under.

To track cases around the state, use the plus and minus buttons in the bottom left to find your region or city. Clicking the icon will show you the exact number of confirmed COVID-19 cases.

The map will be updated daily, excluding weekends.

    This would be a lot more convincing if all people within a certain age group could be tested – I know 30 somethings who are sick and have been sick going on three weeks but because they aren’t running high fevers every day and they are not in a certain demographic and they don’t have a primary care because they are usually healthy – so they can’t get any medical care or testing.
