Florida Today has acquired this data of total coronavirus deaths in the state from Florida Medical Examiners Commission
The number of statewide coronavirus deaths stated by the Florida Department of Health differs markedly from those of medical examiners. This may be due to the delay in reporting of deaths from one hospital to the other. Further, the district health officers may not have recorded deaths timely.
In some countries, the number of medical examiners and doctors is higher as compared to other countries. Therefore, the death rate may not be recorded accurately in highly populated counties having more cases as compared to the counties having a lesser population and fewer cases.
