BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We warned this morning (Sunday, April 26) that the first numbers report showing a dramatic decrease in new Florida COVID-19 cases may be short lived and it was. The updated numbers, just released by the Florida Department of Health, show an INCREASE on Saturday from the day before.
On Saturday, there were at least 830 new cases of COVID-19. On Friday, the number was 778.
As we constantly report, a small increase or decrease is statistically insignificant, but it does show that we are nowhere near the 14-day-decline that the CDC says should be used as an indicator that reopening is acceptable.
As of mid-day Sunday, there were at least 31,528 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Florida with 1,074 deaths.
In Palm Beach County, at least 2,697 cases of COVID-19 have been logged with 155 deaths.
