Florida Reports 100+ New Coronavirus Cases in Last 24 Hours

The number of coronavirus cases in Florida has taken an alarming jump over the past day, increasing to 390, health officials say.


The new figure represents an increase of nearly 100 after 216 cases were confirmed on Tuesday. Over the past 24 hours, three Florida counties reported their first cases, bringing the total to 30 out of 67 counties.
The two most infected counties are Broward and Miami-Dade, which have confirmed 96 and 86 cases, respectively. The county with the third-highest number of cases doesn’t even come close to the first two. Palm Beach reports 29 cases.
What are some possible reasons the virus is spreading so quickly in Florida? Should the entire state be quarantined?
