Florida on Sunday reported more than 15,000 new coronavirus cases, shattering its previous record of 11,336 set on Thursday. If Florida were a country only the United States, Brazil, and India would have recorded more new infections over that same span, Reuters reports. No European country recorded a daily number that high during the height of the pandemic there, while Florida also broke New York state's previous record of 12,847 new cases on April 10 when it was the epicenter of the outbreak in the United States. The positivity rate did drop slightly in Florida thanks to an increase in testing even though the number of positive results increased.
