Chaos over true daily COVID deaths: Florida and Delaware skew Johns Hopkins' figures with massive data dump taking total up by 300% - but true figure is significantly lower The daily death toll trebled in 24 hours from 321 Thursday to 891 Friday, according to Johns Hopkins data  Florida only reports its COVID-19 figures once a week on a Friday, so all deaths were added in one lump sum Johns Hopkins data shows Florida made up almost half - 409 - of the daily tally Friday, as  the state total death toll climbed from 38,670 last week to 39,079 To add to the confusion, the Florida Health Department announced a far lower figure of 108 deaths  Delaware also sent total deaths skyrocketing, as officials added 130 deaths Friday following a state review   None of the deaths were in the last 24 hours with just 2 all week - instead deaths were between mid-May 2020 and late June 2021   Michigan also reported 23 deaths, up from zero Thursday, as it posts COVID-19 data just twice a week   Taking out these three anomalies, daily deaths instead climbed 2.5 percent from 321 Thursday to 329
