Florida reports more than 10,000 COVID-19 cases for the second day in a row – Disney Reopen a cause?

Florida has already become an epicentre of COVID-19 pandemic in the US. Reopening Disneyland can have any serious consequences?

Florida reported 10,300 new Coronavirus cases on Saturday, albeit a little low than the 11,000 cases it reported on Friday. However, it can be a record of sorts with more than 10,000 cases in a row for the second day. Incidentally, Disneyland opened on Saturday after being closed for more than four months.

The Daily Positive Rate or DPR stood at 18.39 percent on Thursday as opposed to the DPR on Friday that stood at 12.7 percent. This can perhaps be yet another reason for worry. The Daily Positive Rate refers to the percentage of the positive cases reported as against the total number of people tested in a day. The COVID-19 Data and Surveillance board for Florida  showed that the DPR has been hovering around 15 per cent for the past seven days.

Meanwhile Disneyland in Florida opened for the tourists on this week after the closure for more than a period of  4 months. The Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom have first opened and will be followed by EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Wearing of masks and social distancing in mandatory for the visitors. That apart, the visitors will also be checked for the temperature when they enter and need to go for reservation before they can visit Disneyland.

One of the huge attractions at the theme park, daily parades and fireworks shows, will no longer be held. It may be remembered that the event has always been a trademark of the Magic Kingdom. Meeting and greeting the characters has also been cancelled. These measures, as per the information available on Disney website, are to discourage the people from forming a gathering.

It may be worthwhile here to mention that Florida has emerged as the epicentre of the Coronavirus pandemic in the US. There have been more than a quarter million of cases reported and over 4000 deaths in the Florida region. The city is likely to impose restrictions once again. It may be remembered that the restrictions were lifted in May after the decline in the cases.
