On a day where Osceola County added just five positive cases of COVID-19, bringing its number up to 94, it registered its first death from the virus.
The Florida Department of Health Monday reported a 58-year-old man died. His case was listed neither as travel related or as coming in contact with someone with a confirmed case. His positive case was confirmed back on March 21, Osceola’s 12th case.
One of Osceola’s new cases logged Monday is a 12-year-old girl whose case isn’t travel related or through contact with another confirmed case.
The state of Florida now counts 5,704 cases, a 15 percent jump Monday, and 71 deaths. Nearly half (2,838) are in Dade and Broward counties.
