Florida’s COVID-19 Death Toll Tops 15,000

MIAMI — Florida’s COVID-19 death toll surpassed more than 15,000 as the state detected more than 2,500 new coronavirus cases and local governments and school districts carried on with reopening plans.

Health officials tallied 139 new deaths, while 2,128 patients are being treated in Florida hospitals for COVID-19, a slight decrease from Tuesday’s figures. The health department figures do not represent casualties in a 24-hour period, and include deaths from several previous days.

Miami public schools continued to welcome children for physical instruction Wednesday after more than a month of virtual learning.
