No, Alachua County cases did not increase by 12% from Saturday to Sunday


If you read the Gainesville Sun, you probably saw the above headline (“County cases increase by 12%”) this morning. That number is double the actual increase.

The body of the article says the number of cases grew from 110 Saturday to 123 by Sunday evening. However, 110 was the Friday evening number. The Saturday morning number was 115. So the growth from 110 to 123 was over 2 full days, not one day. The actual increase was around 6% each day.
