BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The mid-day Easter Sunday report from the Florida Department of Health shows an increase in cases in COVID-19 cases in Palm Beach County. The infection count now stands at 1,609. Now breaking down numbers by percentages, health officials say 50 percent of those infected are men, 49 percent are women. The death count is 80. The age range of the deceased in Palm Beach County remains 38 to 96.
At least 251 people are — or were — hospitalized with COVID-19 related issues in Palm Beach County.
In Boca Raton, at least 266 people have now tested positive for COVID-19, in Delray it’s 216, in Boynton it’s 214.
As always, the numbers only reflect those who have been tested. The assumption is that far more people are actually carrying the COVID-19 virus than have been tested.
