The Florida Department of Health reported another massive increase in the number of new Covid-19 cases, but tallied very few deaths on Monday.

There were 6,012 new cases but just three deaths reported statewide, according to the DOH report issued at 10 a.m., Tuesday.

The state has now recorded 152,434 total COVID-19 cases and 3,505 deaths. There are 14,580 hospitalized in Florida and 1.9 million tests have been administered.

Santa Rosa County saw a startling jump of 111 in new cases confirmed as its total leapt from 482 to 593. County Health Department spokeswoman Debbie Stilphen attributed the big jump to test results coming in from across a tri-county area.

Okaloosa, Walton and Bay counties also saw increased case counts of 30 or more.

As of Sunday, Okaloosa County was reporting 13 people hospitalized with nine occupying ICU beds and one patient requiring a ventilator. The number of deaths across the region remained at 40.
