We have plenty of new statistics related to COVID-19 to bring you now, courtesy of Osceola County’s new tracking dashboard.
There’s what we’ve brought you twice daily for going on a month now, which is still important — Osceola topped 400 cases Saturday, adding 11 to get to 403, and hospitalizations hold almost steady at 119.
Then there’s new information, such as:
- Osceola County has 338 available hospital beds out of 1,027, roughly 1 in 3, which is steady from yesterday when the dashboard debuted. The county can add 53 more. The percentage is roughly the same as neighboring counties. It’s a number to watch intently.
