BY JENNIFER CABRERA

According to the state dashboard, Alachua County now has 133 COVID-19-positive cases, up from 123 at this time yesterday. No deaths have been reported. 16 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 13629 cases (an increase of 1278 from this time yesterday) and 254 deaths (up from 221 at this time yesterday).

Dade County has 35% of the state’s cases. Broward has 15%; Palm Beach 8%; Orange 5%; and Hillsborough 4%. Alachua County represents about 1.2% of the state’s population and less than 1% of the state’s cases.

12 COVID-19 tests are pending in Alachua County. 2351 people have been tested so far in Alachua County, and 2203 tests have come back negative, so 93.7% of the tests so far have been negative (0.5% are pending). Only 5.7% of the local tests have come back positive so far. Of the 123 tests that came back since this time yesterday, 12.3% came back positive.
