Excellent work Susan! I hope this is a daily or weekly report so we can see what is happening with COVID 19 in our county.

Am I the only one who noticed that the numbers have not changed in two days? And then we learn that “Governor deSanitize the data” does not allow county medical examiners to report cases directly to the public. The information must first go to the FL Department of Health which is the only body that can verify cases and deaths. As former Navy Seal Malcolm Nance always says, “Coincidences take a lot of planning.” Is it a coincidence that centralization of reporting of COVID19 by deSantis appointees began the same day the state lifted the lock-down?
