BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The big drop we reported based on the first wave of Thursday numbers isn’t actually so big. While the updated mid-day numbers reflect a decline in new cases, the decline by 172 isn’t quite the several hundred case drop we reported earlier today.
As we cautioned in our first report, the “day before” numbers are often updated mid day — that’s what happened here.
