The recovery rate is not much higher to give us any hope. More than 1,533,800 people have been tested for the coronavirus, the testing is relatively higher and that’s why mostly the cases are coming out, which is a good sign and at the same time it has given birth to a situation of fear and panic in the state.

Though Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez announced that the plans for re-openings won’t be canceled despite the rise in the cases, and he ensured that the safety measures at the businesses and public places would be strictly enforced. Gov.
Ron DeSantis said in a press conference on Friday that the increase in the number of daily infections are caused by the testing in young adults who claimed that they have fewer chances to become severely ill or die if they contract the virus.
He said, “It’s gonna continue to go down based on what we have seen.”
