Florida added 2,583 coronavirus cases Thursday to push the statewide total to 654,731 infected. With 211 new virus fatalities reported statewide Thursday, 12,326 Florida residents are now dead.

Each report includes deaths from several previous days, as it can take two weeks or more for fatalities to be logged.

The Florida Department of Health hasn’t reported a daily increase above 10,000 infections since July 25.

Testing has declined statewide, to a daily average of about 23,000 so far in September. That’s down from about 32,000 daily tests on average in August and 54,400 a day in July.
