Victor Suero, 34, is treated for COVID-19 at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, July 23, 2021. Doctors and nurses in the Florida hospital thought the onslaught of coronavirus admissions had ended. Now they need more intensive care beds.

ORLANDO, Fla. - A day after it recorded the most new daily cases since the start of the pandemic, Florida on Sunday broke a previous record for current hospitalizations set more than a year ago before vaccines were available.

The Sunshine State had 10,207 people hospitalized with confirmed COVID-19 cases, according to data reported to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.

The previous record was from July 23, 2020, more than a half-year before vaccinations started becoming widespread, when Florida had 10,170 hospitalizations, according to the Florida Hospital Association.
