TALLAHASSEE (FCV) – Approximately 30% of Florida’s COVID-19 cases in the past 30 days were breakthrough cases, Jeremy Redfern, the press secretary for the Florida Department of Health, told FCV.
A breakthrough case is when an individual has been ‘immunized’ for an illness via a vaccination, yet still contracts the illness.
Redfern explained that higher rates of breakthrough cases are a driving reason for Florida’s promotion of monoclonal antibody treatments like Regeneron.
Currently, Florida ranks as one of the lowest states for COVID-19 case rates in the country.
This year, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has opened up a multitude of monoclonal antibody treatment plants across the state.
The Florida Department of Health also recently launched its new Healthier You initiative, encouraging good diet and exercise as prime components of good overall health for guarding against COVID-19 infection.
DeSantis has touted the state’s strong COVID-19 performance paired with pro-liberty policies like restrictions on government mandates.
The vaccination for COVID-19 is effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death.
