Growth of COVID-19 cases in Florida not limited to a few counties
The bulk of the confirmed COVID-19 cases in Florida are mostly in the counties with large urban populations (Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Orange, and Hillsborough). However, if you turn to the next graph you will see that most of the other counties are cruising in the same direction as Dade county. The exceptions are the 5 lower lines which are Charlotte, Manatee, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, and Leon counties. These counties are still experiencing exponential growth, but at a lower rate. Healthcare systems statewide are likely to be overwhelmed.
