Health Authorities Offer Encouraging Messages As COVID-19 Cases And Hospitalizations Continue To Decline

MIAMI, Fla. – The CDC reported fewer than 4,000 new COVID-19 cases in Florida in the last day, the lowest daily figure since late July.

The number of Covid patients in Florida hospitals has dropped to less than 7,000.

After more than a year talking about a new normal and this global pandemic, there finally seems to be a light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel.

The end of this pandemic may be in sight.

Dr. Hany Atallah, Jackson Memorial Hospital Medical Director, observed a downward trend in COVID-19 numbers across the Jackson Health System.

He said it is due in large part to vaccines and also to the number of unvaccinated people who became ill.

Even the Memorial Health System shared similar news, posting videos throughout the month.

Broward Health has also joined, reporting that they have dropped 130 COVID-19 patients.


Jackson is at 172, with 47 of those patients still in critical care.

Health officials believe the next few months are crucial to moving forward and avoiding another wave, saying the proof is in the numbers and vaccinations will get us to that goal of four to eight months.
