Update (1140ET): The NYT has been harping non-stop on the fact that nearly a dozen states have reported an uptick in cases since they started rolling back restrictions, only rarely mentioning that a commensurate rise in testing capacity was often enough to explain these increases, and that public health officials in these states expected cases to rise in the near term as people started interacting in public again.

In Florida on Tuesday, the Florida Department of Health reported 424 new cases over the last 24 hours, bringing the states total confirmed cases to 52,170. Meanwhile, the number of reported deaths increased by just 7 to 2,259.

The total statewide number of patients hospitalized with the virus is just 9,482, though the Department of Health noted that this figure does not reflect the number of COVID-19 patients currently in hospitals, according to the News-Press of Southwest Florida.

New Jersey, which has reopened much more slowly than Florida, just reported a 1,500-patient drop in hospitalizations over the past 2 weeks.

Meanwhile the state reported just 54 deaths on Tuesday…

…and just 703 cases.
