Coronavirus cases are spiking nationwide and experts say Florida could be the next epicenter in the pandemic.
This is according to Wednesday’s projections from a model by scientists at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania.
Florida was one of the ten states that saw a record number of new Covid-19 cases this week.
Twenty-one states are seeing an upward trend in new coronavirus cases.
Meanwhile scientists say blood type may determine how likely you are to get Covid-19 and how sick it might make you.
The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine Wednesday.
A team of European scientists found people with type A blood have a higher risk of getting the coronavirus and developing severe symptoms.
While people with type O have a lower risk.
