Coronavirus News

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We always caution that numbers are only as good as the testing, so a spike in cases doesn’t necessary reflect anything other than the availability of more tests.

The average age has dramatically decreased — it’s now just 49. The age range for cases in Palm Beach County is 6 to 88.

Of those testing positive, 85 are men and 55 are women. We appreciate that adds up to 140 — it’s unclear why one person’s sex wasn’t recorded.
