On Thursday, Florida reported 120 fatalities, upping the total death rate to 4,111. This includes nonresidents, as Florida was one of the first states to open itself up.

Confirmed coronavirus cases continue to climb, and hospitals are choosing to cancel elective surgeries to have enough beds for COVID-19 patients.

Florida’s total is at 232,718, with additional 8,935 reported recently. In the past two weeks, Florida saw a doubling of new cases, of 118,700.

At the moment, only 15 percent of intensive care unit beds are available in the state, and it is unclear how many will need them.

Florida had never reported more than 100 death a day, but that record was broken on Thursday with 120 fatalities.
