Those deaths brought the state’s total death toll from the virus to 30,595. Of those, 30,065 deaths were Florida residents.

Of the latest deaths, 41 were reported in Central Florida. Marion County saw the largest increase with 14 additional deaths reported Monday.

Nationwide the death toll from the virus in the U.S. is expected to top 500,000 on Monday.

Gottlieb, speaking on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday, said the decline in cases of those infected with the virus should continue because so many people have already contracted COVID-19 or are getting the coronavirus vaccine.

“I think we’re going to continue to see infection rates decline into the spring and the summer,” Gottlieb said. “Right now, they’re falling quite dramatically. I think these trends are likely to continue.”

The number of confirmed COVID-19 infections in the United States has reached more than 28 million, according to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center.
