With the total steadily climbing, a new report shows that nearly 87,000 Florida residents have died of COVID-19 since the pandemic started in early 2020.
The Florida Department of Health released data Friday that showed 86,850 COVID-19 deaths had been reported as of Thursday.
That was up from 86,294 reported deaths two weeks earlier. Because of lags in reporting, it is unclear when the additional deaths occurred.
