BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We’ve been reporting on the number of kids testing positive for COVID-19 in Palm Beach County. Now we have a new metric that shows the child number is a legitimate number to consider.
The median age of those infected in Palm Beach County is now 50. We were in the mid-50s in April. When the pandemic started — and it was believed to be a disease affecting the older — the median age was in the 70s and 80s.
The drop in median age comes two weeks after Palm Beach County moved to a “Phase One” reopening.
As we reported, there are now at least 5,072 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Palm Beach County with 311 deaths.
At least 1,021 people have been hospitalized in Palm Bach County since COVID-19 record keeping was initiated by Florida Department of Health officials.
