BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The current rundown of deaths related to COVID-19 released by the Florida Department of Health includes three deaths that dramatically lower the age range of the deceased in Palm Beach County.
A 34 year old Palm Beach County woman died in the past several days — her death was confirmed by health officials on May 8th.
A 33 year old Palm Beach County woman died in late April. Her death was confirmed on April 24th.
A 30 year old Palm Beach County man died in mid-April. His death was confirmed on April 15th.
The deaths shatter the belief that only the older or elderly are dying from COVID-19 in Palm Beach County. None of the deaths of victims in the 30s is travel related, according to health officials.
The 34-year-old victim had “confirmed contact” with someone else who previously tested positive for COVID-19. It’s unknown, according to health officials, if the 33 year old woman or the 30 year old man had confirmed contact with someone who tested positive.
