BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The first numbers released Monday by Florida health officials shows a total infected count in Florida of more than 32,000. The number: 32,138 as of 10:45 a.m. The death count is now 1,088. At least 5,010 are — or have been — hospitalized with COVID-19 related issues.
The “new case” count which — as we always report — is only as good as the number of tests being performed, shows 535 new cases reported on Sunday. This statistic tends to be updated later in the day, so check back to see Sunday’s final number late Monday afternoon. The Sunday number — at this point — does show a decline from Saturday.
In Palm Beach County, the infected count is 2673 with 156 deaths. The media age of those infected in Palm Beach County remains 56. The male-female split is almost even, with 1,366 people identifying as male, 1,338 identifying as female, and one person not providing this information.
