COVID Deaths in South Florida and Manatee County

The CDC’s Community Profile Report released county-level death data for Florida’s 67 counties.

It is unclear when these newly reported deaths occurred. The Community Profile Report updates Florida’s county death tolls and rates about once every seven days, on or after the COVID-19 weekly situation report is published by the Florida Department of Health on Fridays.

As of Tuesday’s Community Profile Report, the most recent, Florida had a death rate of 267 cumulative deaths per 100,000 people since the start of the pandemic. Two weeks ago, the state had a death rate of 252 deaths per 100,000 people.

Here’s where death rates and tolls stand in South Florida and Manatee, according to the CDC.

Miami-Dade County’s death toll sits at 8,648, an increase of 144 deaths from the CDC’s last report. That’s a rate of 318 cumulative deaths per 100,000 people since the beginning of the pandemic.

Broward County’s death toll sits at 4,614, an increase of 92 deaths from the CDC’s last report. That’s a rate of 236 cumulative deaths per 100,000 people since the beginning of the pandemic.
