Florida broke a new record for COVID-19 hospitalizations on Sunday, reporting more than 10,200 patients.

According to data reported to the Department of Health and Human Services, 10,207 COVID-19 patients were in the hospital in Florida, The Associated Press reported

That beat out the previous record of 10,170 hospitalizations logged on July 23, 2020, according to the Florida Hospital Association, months before any vaccine was available.

The hospitalization record came just days after Florida registered its highest daily number of confirmed COVID-19 cases since the beginning of the pandemic with 21,683, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). According to the AP, Florida now has the highest number of COVID-19 hospitalizations per capita in the country.
