April 24 evening update: 1 death, 244 cases so far in Alachua County

BY JENNIFER CABRERA

Although the total number of cases jumped yesterday, the number of test results that came back was 4 times the number in recent days, so the percentage of tests that came back positive was still very low–about 3.1%. Cases continue to increase in long-term care facilities – 10 of the 21 new cases in the past 3 days have been in long-term care facilities.

According to the state dashboard, Alachua County now has 244 COVID-19-positive cases, up from 231 at this time yesterday. One death (total) has been reported.

31 residents or staff in long-term care facilities have been diagnosed with COVID-19, up from 26 at this time yesterday. According to the latest report, there are two long-term care facilities in Alachua County that have reported positive cases in residents or staff: Oak Hammock and Parklands Care Center.

Available bed capacity in Alachua County is 33.37%.

The state has 30,533 cases (an increase of 885 from this time yesterday on a 68% increase in testing from the day before) and 1,046 deaths (an increase of 59 from this time yesterday).
