April 3 evening update: 110 cases in Alachua County


According to the state dashboard, Alachua County now has 110 COVID-19-positive cases, up from 95 at this time yesterday. No deaths have been reported. 14 people have been hospitalized (it is unclear whether that is the current number or a cumulative number; the Department of Health just said they don’t have information on recoveries because it is self-reported).

The state has 10268 cases (an increase of 1260 from this time yesterday) and 170 deaths (up from 144 at this time yesterday).

It is worth noting that there was a large increase in the number of test results that came back yesterday at both the state and county levels.

Dade County has 33% of the state’s cases. Broward has 16%; Palm Beach 8%; Orange 6%; and Hillsborough 5%. Alachua County represents about 1.2% of the state’s population and 1.07% of the state’s cases.

15 COVID-19 tests are pending in Alachua County. 1932 people have been tested so far in Alachua County, and 1805 tests have come back negative, so 93.4% of the tests so far have been negative (0.8% are pending). Only 5.7% of the local tests have come back positive so far.
