Florida Department of Health Launches COVID-19 APP
Governor Ron DeSantis is moving forward with a phased reopening plan throughout Florida. The Florida Department of Health introduced an app (The StrongerThanC19) that allows easy-access to the Community Action Survey, which officials believe can help lower the spread of the COVID-19 in Florida. According to the recently published Community Action Survey Report, many Florida residents don’t respect safety measures aimed at preventing the coronavirus spread among urban populations such as Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and other cities throughout Miami-Dade and Broward; the hardest hit counties by COVID-19.
The StrongerThanC-19 App
Launched on April 7 by the Florida Department of Health, the StrongerThanC-19 app provides users with access to a survey to help lower the curve of the coronavirus by way of a series of questions that target symptoms and tendencies to treat and/or prevent the virus spread. To date, some 350,000 app users have taken the survey (see survey results below).
Coronavirus Prevention Includes:
- The use of a mask
- The use of goggles
- Hand sanitization
- Social Distancing
- Regular disinfection of surfaces and object
- Avoiding crowds
- Staying home
According to the Community Action Survey, 22.5% fail to meet disinfection safety measures and just over 25% said they’d go to work despite feeling sick. Also, the CDC, the FDH, and doctors have experienced a 50% drop in patient consultations and visits.
More Survey Figures:
- 36,000 – Number of people experiencing symptoms
- 12,500 – Number of people that answered they felt sick
- 882 – Number of people admitting to having commuted while feeling sick
- 94,838 – May have been in close contact with someone that has tested positive for COVID-19
- 229,370- Have not had close contact with someone that has tested positive for COVID-19
- 88,990 – Could not confirm being exposed to someone that has tested positive for COVID-19
- 305,885 – Say they would not seek medical treatment
As Florida’s Department of Health confirms 802 new COVID-19 cases, doubling the number from the day before, concerns flare among the homeless, elderly, essential workers, and most importantly healthcare workers. Florida coronavirus cases total 40,001 with numbers expected to grow as more testing is expected among the homeless, nursing home residents, and prison inmates.
