Miami hospitals have reached 95% capacity due to the growing Covid-19 pandemic, the city’s mayor, Francis Suarez, told reporters Thursday.
The percentage of positive cases is growing at a smaller rate, Suarez said.
The highest category of people who are getting infected are people between the ages of 18 and 34, who represent 27% of the population, Suarez said.
“They are going back to the home and infecting everybody in the household,” according to Suarez.
From the surveys received by the city “33.7% are reporting they are getting infected by a family member,” Suarez said, emphasizing the importance of sanitizing measures at home.
