COVID-19 in Florida is becoming a lot like the weather. If you don’t like what you see one day, wait. It will change.
Florida logged 2,037 NEW cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, but that is presumably a function of more testing and reporting. The percent positive statewide dropped a bit from 6.96 on Tuesday to 5.33 on Thursday. The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Florida is now 60,183.
In Palm Beach County, the lack of consistency seems to be the only thing that consistent. After several days of record-setting “percent positive” numbers — reach 10.5 percent on Tuesday, the number plummeted on Wednesday to just 4.4 precent. Take a look at the bar chart below from the Florida Department of Health. Palm Beach County is all over the place.
In Palm Beach County, there are now at least 6,688 confirmed cases of COVID-19. The death count in Palm Beach County has risen to 363.
In Boca Raton, at least 660 people have tested positive. In Delray Beach it’s 518. In Boynton the positive count is 669.
