Fewer than 300 hospital beds are available this morning across Osceola County, according to the county’s coronavirus dashboard.
That number has been between 330 and 360 since the dashboard debuted on Friday, but was 291 Tuesday morning. Per the Florida Department of Health, COVID-19 related hospitalizations went from 119 to 125, but there’s no telling how the virus impacted that drop in total beds left.
Osceola County added six cases overnight — there had been seven total in the day-and-a-half prior — to push up to 416. The county announced this morning a drive-up testing center will open Thursday at Osceola Heritage Park, and it will be worth noting how public open testing will affect local case numbers.
The county has recorded five fatalities, the last one on April 9, nearly two weeks ago.
The state of Florida is now up to 27,495 cases and 839 deaths statewide.
