About 60% of the stateís 6,000 ICU beds are already taken, according to Agency for Health Care Administration data on Friday evening. And itís still about a month before experts say the state will hit its peak number of COVID-19 cases.
Dr. Charles Lockwood, dean of University of South Floridaís Health Morsani College of Medicine, said hospitalizations are a good indicator of the severity of the virus because most people who have it can recuperate at home. While the numbers of hospitalizations in Florida are startling, the situation isnít as bad as New York so far, Lockwood said.



And, for me, the hat trick is being furloughed starting April 19. Iím fearing this will be lasting about 2-3 months

3. "We don't want everyone in the country to get a test". That was the deflection of Yamiche Alcindor's

question at the one campaign presser. She didn't phrase the question right when she asked about when everyone could get tested, so se kind of let him get away with that one. She clearly meant everyone we need to have tested. Obviously we wouldn't make it mandatory for everyone to be tested because of all the extra unnecessary contacts it would mean. Plus using up tests needlessly.
