Over 4K new COVID-19 cases reported by FDOH on Monday

But if you were to argue, as Trump did not, that more tests reveal greater numbers of existing and real cases (ie. the objective of testing), thus giving a more accurate picture of how the disease has actually spread, and that therefore places with less testing aren't giving a true representation of the total cases in those countries, then it does not stand to reason that we should do less testing.

Fauci said last week that he was seeing signs the surge of COVID-19 cases could be peaking in the South and West while other areas were on the cusp of new outbreaks.

In Polk, 148 new cases were reported Monday, bringing the county's overall total to 13,137.

Health officials also reported 27,366 hospital admissions statewide.

Officials testifying with Fauci at a contentious House hearing on Friday acknowledged that the U.S. remains unable to deliver all COVID-19 test results within two or three days, and they jointly pleaded with Americans to comply with basic precautions such as wearing masks, avoiding crowds, and washing their hands frequently.

The Department of Health notes the total figure is cumulative and does not reflect the number of COVID-19 patients now in hospitals. Polk added 222 new cases, for a total of 12,281, and Osceola added 151 for a total of 8,281.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, Florida and Texas now make up nine out of ten coronavirus hot spots in the U.S.
