TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Department of Health is confirming more positive COVID-19 cases in South Florida.

In Miami-Dade County there have been 23 positive cases while there are now 38 confirmed in Broward County.

The Florida DOH launched a new, interactive website Monday, which can be found here.

The site tallying 131 cases of COVID-19 in Florida, with almost half of those cases coming in Miami-Dade and Broward alone.

“This community outbreak has been happening long before it was announced,” said FIU Epidemiologist Dr. Aileen Marty. “The numbers that you see for us are not accurate.”

That sobering observation makes sense as the positive case results continue to rise with the number of coronavirus test kits available.

During a Monday afternoon press conference, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis provided the latest coronavirus updates from the State Emergency Operations Center in Tallasassee.
