Miami’s Largest Hospital Scaling back Surgeries

MIAMI — The largest hospital in Florida’s hardest-hit county in the coronavirus pandemic announced it is scaling back elective surgeries and other procedures because of a new surge in cases.

Jackson Health System in Miami says it will limit non-emergency admissions on Monday because of “a steady increase” in the number of coronavirus patients over the past few weeks.

The county and others in South Florida are closing beaches for the Fourth of July holiday in hopes of preventing further virus spread due to large crowds.

Miami-Dade has 37,961 confirmed cases and 1,000 deaths, according to the state Department of Health.

Florida on Wednesday reported more than 6,500 confirmed cases for a total of 158,997 and 3,550 deaths.
