On a day where United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned that the battle of and response to the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak is “the most challenging crisis since World War II,” some statistics reflected the war truly on this generation’s hands.
The number of deaths from the coronavirus in Florida reached triple digits as they now sit at 101 as of Wednesday night. Osceola County also saw its largest daily jump Wednesday, adding 30 cases to its total of 140. There are 43 virus-related hospitalizations, but still just the one death, a 58-year-old man reported on Monday. Those aged 35 to 64 make up 81 of the 140 county cases.
As reminded by local officials, who instituted the local “Stay at Home” declaration, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who reiterated it Wednesday by issuing the same statewide ban, it’s time to limit contact with people outside your family for the next month to help “flatten the curve”. It’s a time to stay calm, stay home … and stay Positive!
