Florida added more than 6,200 new confirmed COVID-19 cases Saturday, as the state’s virus-related death toll rose by nearly 80.

The 6,276 new COVID-19 cases brought Florida’s total to 985,297, according to the daily report from the state’s department of health.

With 79 more virus-related deaths among Florida residents, the total rose to 18,442 Saturday. Another 235 non-resident deaths have been confirmed in the state to-date, two more than in Friday’s report.

Deaths may have occurred days or weeks earlier, due to the time it takes to confirm they are coronavirus-related. Because of delays in confirming the deaths, most of them are recorded a week or longer after they occurred.

The positivity rate for new cases in the state was 7.14% in Saturday’s report, an increase from Friday’s 6.18%.

The positivity rate for all cases, including people who have already been tested, was 8.98% in Saturday’s report.
