Cases up day on day and percentage change is higher higher than the 7 day range. Deaths reach a new record at 156. The old record was 132.

As cases rise, the number of deaths should increase at a delayed basis. Nevertheless the death rate is still well below levels seen in hot spots like New York (A spike high in NY reached 958 spike, with 800 being more of a smooth trend high watermark).

Case counts in NY peaked at 12,274. Florida case count has risen above the NY peak (PS the number of tests were probably lower in NY at the peak however)
