ORLANDO, Fla. — As coronavirus cases rise in Florida, questions mount over the reasons.
New cases in Florida have stayed above the 1,000 mark daily since June 2. Then on Friday they spiked, with 2,372 new cases, according to the Florida Dept. of Health. The percentage of people in Florida who have tested positive for the virus has also risen.
The total number of coronavirus cases in Florida surpassed 75,000, according to numbers released Sunday.
Gov. DeSantis said Friday that a spike in cases this past week was caused by increased testing.
Some health officials say reopening is a factor, though.
