Florida has seen the third-most confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the country with nearly 1.9 million. On Sunday, the state saw 4,113 new cases, according to its public data, and its case positivity rate remains above 5%. The World Health Organization recommends to governments that rates of positivity remain at 5% or lower for at least 14 days before reopening.
