BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We will have a full update a little later this afternoon but Florida’s just updated daily numbers reveal a record. 2,372 NEW cases of COVID-19 were recorded on Friday. The percent positive for the day soared to 8.82 percent, mitigating claims that the increase is just result of more testing.
We’ll have the full statistical report, plus the Rebekah Jones numbers — later today. As we reported yesterday, Jones is the fired lead data scientist for the State of Florida who was removed for not following orders, according to Gov. Ron DeSantis. She is now releasing what she says are more accurate numbers on a daily basis. We will be reporting the “official” numbers and the “Jones” numbers on a continuing basis.
