BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There are now at least 20,601 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the State of Florida. The just-out numbers from the Florida Department of Health also reveal 470 deaths with 2,695 hospitalizations.
Locally, there are now 1,691 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Palm Beach County with an even split between men and women — both listed as 49-percent. The death count is 88.
In Boca Raton, there are 282 confirmed infections, 227 in Delray Beach and 217 in Boynton Beach. Keep in mind, these numbers are completely based on tests that were reported to the State of Florida. It is reasonable to assume the actual number of infections is significantly higher.
If there is good news, there definitely seems to be a decline in “new” cases being reported to state health officials. The peak of new cases appears to have come in very early April when roughly 1350 new cases were reported in one day. The latest full-day report suggests approximately 825 new cases. But keep in mind, these numbers only represent tests that have been conducted.
