Coronavirus update March 29, 2020

Dear Neighbor:

​​​​​​​Like I promised, I am bringing you one more update about the coronavirus. According to new numbers released by the Florida Department of Health, more than 4,246 people have been afflicted with COVID-19, and another 56 have died from the virus. When we compared these new numbers to those I published on March 26, 2020, we find out that Florida is doing better than the rest of the country. Nevertheless, the national and state statistics of new cases and their respective deaths continue to be alarming.

The following table shows the dramatic changes in the number of cases in two days, and one day respectively.

As you can see, in only two days, between March 26, and March 28, the national number of new cases increased by 51% and the number of deaths by 68%. The results in Florida were even more troublesome. These numbers clearly talk about how contagious this novel virus is and about how dangerous it could become if we don’t work together to prevent the spreading of this virus. Despite the new encouraging statistic, which covers one day period, we must still be cautious and remain at home. More extended periods of data would be necessary to assert that the measurements taken by the authorities are working.

While our first responders, federal, State, and Local government are doing phenomenal work to prevent the spreading of the coronavirus, your cooperation is essential to prevent further spreading of it. The most important thing you must remember is to stay at home to protect your family, you, and others.

SERVICES YOU MUST BE AWARE OF:

Remember always to call 911 if you feel your life is in imminent danger. Otherwise, if you have questions and concerns about the coronavirus, you can call Florida

Department of Health’s 24-hour hotline at 1-866-779-6121.

If you are over the age of 65, and you need food, medication, or other items delivered, you can contact me, and I will personally try to deliver those to you, but please, do not leave your house.
