Florida’s Jackson Health System Reports COVID-19 Increase by 226%

Florida’s health system is losing the battle with the novel coronavirus.

Since June 14, the Jackson Health System reported an increase in new COVID-19 cases by 226%, which is a devastating rate, worrying not only the state officials but the entire country as well.

The reason for this high increase is addressed to people not wearing masks, says the Health System’s CEO Carlos Migoya.
“The challenges that we’ve had is that the people have not been masking or being socially distant, especially the younger people.”

Mr. Migoya also added that the biggest problem comes from visitors, not from Florida residents.

Another intimidating fact about coronavirus in Florida is that 54 hospitals have already reached their ICU (intensive care unit) capacity.

The Agency for Health Care Administration’s data shows zero ICU beds availability at the moment, and ten of those hospitals are in Miami Dade.

Another 40 hospitals in this state are reporting only 10% of ISU beds capacity, which is creating panic among the local population.

Migoya is blaming young people for the extreme spike in coronavirus cases in Florida. He is addressing the asymptomatic among them who are transmitting the virus to older members of their families.

According to him, in the following weeks, there will be more new increase in COVID-19 cases across Florida. The state counts 292,000 (9,194 new) infected cases and 4,408 deaths.
