"With younger age of recent infections in at least some places such as Florida, expect a lower death rate in this wave ... until the 20-40 year olds who are infected today go on to infect others," Frieden, president and CEO of the initiative Resolve to Save Lives, tweeted on Sunday.Read More The Florida Department of Health reported 3,494 new cases of coronavirus on Sunday, bringing the state total to 97,291.
