The state hit its greatest single-day total of coronavirus since the pandemic hit.

The 1,419 increase in coronavirus cases – bringing the state’s cumulative total to 60,183 cases – was the largest one-day spike in records going back to late March, when the pandemic deepened in Florida.

The previous high daily count was 1,416 cases on April 17. The state was then still on tighter, stay-at-home orders under Gov. Ron DeSantis.

41 deaths were reported Thursday, bringing the overall toll of the disease to 2,607 fatalities in Florida.
