FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Florida has set a one-day coronavirus death record for the state. Tuesday's record of 132 cases is in line with its skyrocketing fatality rate over the past week and its rapidly growing number of cases over the last month. The 132 deaths is a 10% jump over the previous record set just Thursday. The latest jump likely includes deaths that happened Saturday or Sunday but weren't reported until Monday. Still, the rolling seven-day average is now 81 deaths per day, currently the second-highest in the country behind Texas, and double the 39 averaged two weeks ago.
