South Florida COVID-19 Trajectory

Introduction

Public understanding of science is critical in times of crisis. The following analysis was conducted to examine the trajectory of COVID-19 in the South Florida counties of Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach. For phased reopening, the White House has set guidelines for local municipalities in their “Opening Up American Again” report. In the report, it is highly suggested that:

  1. Local areas show a downward trajectory in the number of positive cases as a percent of total tests over a two-week period, and
  2. Local hospitals have capacity to handle all patients without crisis care.

The analysis begins by looking at the number of new positive cases each day and the number of total tests performed each day. The figures are presented together because as there is more testing, there are likely to be more positive test results. Therefore, the proportion of positive cases is also calculated. Given a flat or increasing number of tests performed, the proportion of positive cases is the key metric to be used when looking at epidemic trajectory. It is recommended that this proportion not exceed 5%.

Finally, to ensure hospitals can meet demand without crisis care, the COVID-19 positive hospitalization census, COVID-19 positive ICU census, and COVID-19 positive ventilation census is plotted over time. Census refers to the number of COVID-19 positive patients in the hospital, ICU, and on ventilators, respectively, on a given day.

For Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties, this document shows the

  • Full testing counts data,
  • Count of positive and total COVID-19 tests since mid-March,
  • Proportion of positive counts to total counts within the last two weeks,
  • Proportion of positive counts to total counts since mid-March,
  • Full COVID-19 hospitalization census data, and
  • Counts of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 since the beginning of April

Note: 5-day moving averages are used to smooth data. Note: On 8/31 there was a one-time historical data submission of a large number of cases from a large laboratory. The number of cases for 8/31 in the current report excludes this historical data submission. Note: a data dump of previously reported results prevented the reporting system from normal processing of lab results on October 9th, causing an inaccurate representation of data for October 9th and October 10th.
