Greetings neighbors, this is the Miami Corona Project Daily Update for Friday, April 24th, 2020:

As of yesterday, there have been 10,588 positive cases of coronavirus across the county, with 1,172 hospitalizations and a total of 270 deaths–thirty more than yesterday.

Across the United States, the national total of positive cases is now 864,415, the total number of dead has risen to 47,892.

Let’s hope today brings better news.  I’ll update you tomorrow.


University of Miami researchers are collaborating with Miami-Dade County officials in creating an ongoing weekly survey that randomly selects county residents to volunteer pinpricks of their blood to be screened for antibodies. The results will indicate whether they had the virus in the past or not and help the community truly understand the extent of the infection in the community.

Preliminary study results based on two weeks of testing and 1,400 participants found that half the people who tested positive reported no symptoms in the 14-17 days before being tested, indicating that a lot more people than we think could be infected.
