Despite nationwide media attention on the massive surge in new COVID-19 cases in Florida, the number of hospitalizations and deaths in the state remain relatively flat, giving Governor Ron DeSantis confidence that the state's more vulnerable populations are taking precautions.

Saturday's update in coronavirus cases also shows the Tampa Bay area is seeing more than 3,000 new cases.

On Wednesday, the United States saw a record number of new coronavirus cases in a single day, with 45,557 reported, according to a tally by NBC News.

On Friday, the state suspended alcohol consumption at bars and Miami-Dade announced that beaches would be closed and most parades and parties canceled for July 4.

Flagler County cases have been increasing in tandem with the spike across the state, rising by 60 cases in the last seven days-a fifth of the county's total since the first case was confirmed in March.

"Most of us feel that the number of deaths are likely higher than that number", Anthony S. Fauci, the government's top infectious disease expert, said in testimony before senators in mid-May, when the death toll was in the 80,000 range. On Saturday, 149 hospitalizations were added, bringing the statewide total to 14,136.

The number of COVID-19 related deaths has dropped off in recent days. "I didn't say we're going to go on to the next phase", DeSantis said during a bill signing in Tampa.
