Our state has four new cases of coronavirus, including one announced Thursday afternoon in Seminole County.
Two of the four patients are from South Florida.
The Florida Department of Health said the four cases involve a 57-year-old man from Lee County, a 65-year-old man from Broward County, a 61-year-old man also from Broward County, and the Seminole County case, which involves a 68-year-old man. All of them tested positive for COVID-19 and are in isolation until they are cleared by medical professionals.
The 61-year-old’s case is linked to travel and to Port Everglades.
That brings the total of coronavirus cases with ties to Florida to 35. The number does not include the passenger with coronavirus who landed at PBIA from JFK Airport in New York on Wednesday evening.
Two people in Florida have died from coronavirus, and the health department is monitoring nearly 500 people for it.
This is a developing story.
