Per The Orlando Sentinel, the Sunshine State reported 31,758 new COVID-19 cases today. This total breaks Florida’s all-time record for the highest number of new COVID cases in one day, which was previously 27,802 new cases, set on August 26, 2021, during the outbreak of the Delta variant of the virus that has caused nearly 800,000 in the United States, according to data from the United States Centers for Disease Control.

The latest variant of the virus, Omicron, was first detected in November. Several countries’ governments pushed for travel bans, including the United States, to countries in South Africa, but to no avail, as the variant had spread and has now been found in countries all over the world.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
