Update (1125ET): Florida health officials on Friday reported 10,360 (+4.2%) new COVID-19 cases and 188 deaths, marking the second-most cases reported in a single day, according to data from the state Department of Health dashboard. However, the increase is below the 7-day average of +4.6%.

The 188 deaths reported Saturday is also the most deaths reported in a single day yet. The figure is 50% larger than the number from the prior day. Florida’s previous single-day death tally was 120, which was reported on July 9. The state has reported a total of 4,197 since the beginning of the pandemic.

The US reported yet another record-breaking single-day number of new coronavirus cases on Friday. And while counts by Johns Hopkins and others put the total at roughly 64k cases, a tally by worldometer put the number of new cases at 71,787, the first time the US has reported more than 70k cases in a day.

Those numbers brought the case total in the US to 3,294,539, while the US also reported another 854 new deaths, bringing the total to 136,735k.

That number marked a fourth day of new deaths trending closer to 1k, a psychologically important level.

Globally, the world recorded 228,000 new cases yesterday, another record high as Brazil and India see cases spiral out of control. That brought the international total to 12,689,741.

Friday's numbers brought the mortality rate in the US to 4.8%, while the number of total cases in the country, home to the world's largest outbreak, still represented roughly a quarter of the global total. Globally, there were 12,689,741 confirmed cases as of Saturday morning on the East Coast of the US.

Meanwhile, in Florida, hospitals confirmed that a total of 7,063 patients were hospitalized with the virus in Florida, according to data released Saturday by a state agency. Miami-Dade County is the state leader with 1,601 patients hospitalized, the most in any single county in the country.

While the Sun Belt outbreaks continue to spiral out of control, we noticed an interesting report out of NYC on Saturday. The NYT recently reported that more than 68% of people tested positive for antibodies at a clinic in Corona, a working-class Queens neighborhood,  while 56% tested positive at another clinic in nearby Jackson Heights.

That compares with just 13% of people tested in ritzy Cobble Hill, a ritzy Brooklyn neighborhood.

India has registered more than 800,000 Covid-19 cases so far, the country’s health ministry announced Saturday.

It reported a record 27,114 new Covid-19 cases on Friday, bringing the nationwide total to 820,916.

This is the third consecutive day that the country has recorded its highest single-day jump in new coronavirus cases.

As virus cases continue to soar, Indian cities and states are reimposing strict measures to curb the spread.

A coronavirus vaccine may be two years away, if one is ever found, and low levels of infection may become a part of life, Australia’s deputy chief medical officer warned.

On Friday, India’s most populous state, Uttar Pradesh, imposed new restrictions for the weekend, leaving only essential services operating.

The South Asian nation has so far tested over 11.3 million samples for coronavirus, according to the Indian Council of Medical Research.

Japan recorded 430 new cases, first time the country has registered more than 400 in a day since April 24, when the countywide emergency order was still in effect. Tokyo contirbted 243 of those, its highest daily jump in new cases yet. Japanese TV station NHK also reported that US military facilities in Okinawa have found at least 50 cases.

Finally, in Australia, the state of Victoria, home to Melbourne, recorded 216 new coronavirus cases, Premier Daniel Andrews announced Saturday. Of these 186 remain under investigation, while the other 30 have been linked to known outbreaks. The number was down from the 288 cases reported Thursday, the most in a single day in any Australian state. So far, a total of  21,841 cases have been confirmed, along with 995 deaths.

As the country struggles with this still-relatively-mild resurgence, Australia's deputy chief medical officer issued a stark warning on Saturday. As several vaccine trials get under way in the country (Moderna is testing its vaccine candidate in the country) he warned that a vaccine may be two years away, if one is ever found.

It's still possible that low levels of SARS-CoV-2 infection might become "a part of life."
