Coronavirus in Context: Florida COVID-19 cases explained in 5 charts

We've been tracking who has been most affected by COVID-19.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — As the coronavirus pandemic affects Floridians, 10News remains committed to providing our audience with facts, not fear.

The virus that has been causing what doctors have dubbed Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is different than other coronaviruses that have regularly circulated in the past and caused mild illnesses. The virus behind COVID-19 has been spreading from person to person.

As laboratory testing has expanded, the number of reported cases has drastically increased in the United States. Experts believe many cases are never reported, but more data helps researchers understand and track the outbreak -- which in turn strengthens the country and state's ability to respond.

Based on Florida Department of Health data, 10News has broken out the latest information into a series of charts that help add context to Florida's outbreak.
