As Walt Disney World prepares to reopen Saturday, Florida has recorded the largest weekly increase in coronavirus cases in the country.
In the past seven days, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the state has added nearly 67,000 cases. There are more than 206,000 cases statewide, according to the Florida Department of Health, making the Sunshine State a coronavirus hot spot.
Orlando, about 30 minutes northeast of Disney World, has the second-highest number of coronavirus cases in Florida behind Miami. Monday, Miami began rolling back its reopening. Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez halted dine-in services at restaurants and closed gyms, party venues and short-term rentals.
