The US state of Florida registered a new daily infection record this Sunday, with 15,300 new infections in the past 24 hours.
Florida now has 269,811 positive and 4,842 deaths, although the state has only confirmed 44 deaths in the past few hours, a significant drop in deaths compared to Saturday.
The state authorities had to correct their initial number of 188 deaths per day yesterday, which eventually resulted in 95 deaths, which clarified that this was a review of the accumulated cases.
The latest stock was released one day after the opening of the major Disney World theme park in Orlando after the crisis was declared.
Disney has warned that “in any public place where people are present, there is an inherent risk of being exposed to COVID-19,” and has told its visitors that “they voluntarily assume all of the risks associated with the park,” such as reported on his website.
