The North American state of Florida has surpassed New York in the number of coronavirus infections, with 12,180 infections in the last few hours, bringing the total number to 423,855.
New York, which was considered the epicenter of the disease at the time, has registered a total of 411,200 cases and has been relatively stable for days as the disease devastates the so-called “sun belt” closest to Latin America. .
California, with almost 40 million inhabitants, roughly twice as much as Florida, is today the most affected state with almost 450,000 cases.
The number of deaths in Florida is also increasing. A further 124 deaths are recorded every day for a total of 5,854 deaths. This is evident from the balance updated by the state authorities.
