A day after it recorded the newest daily cases since the start of the pandemic, Florida on Sunday broke a previous record for current hospitalizations set more than a year ago before vaccines were available.

The Sunshine State had 10,207 people hospitalized with confirmed COVID-19 cases.

That's according to data reported to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services on Sunday.

The previous record was from more than a year ago, July 23, 2020, more than a half-year before vaccinations became widespread when Florida had 10,170 hospitalizations.

That is according to the Florida Hospital Association.

Mr Ohio

Maybe we need to start a fake media and put out our numbers, Sars 1 and sars 2 - one is Covid the other the flu- the tests aren’t able to tell them apart - so don’t believe it at all, Florida is warm enough right now if we wear masks in this heat we most certainly will die from suffocation, oh no that was Covid
