BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Palm Beach County is having a problem getting COVID-19 under control. It is so bad, Dr. Alina Alonso, director of the Palm Beach County Health Department, publicly stated: “It is not contained in any way, shape or form.”
As of Saturday, the percent positive in Palm Beach County was back up to 10.2 percent. Simply put, of all the tests logged on Friday (and released on Saturday), 10.2 percent were positive. That’s among the highest recorded, but on par with the ascending numbers released over the past several days.
June 6, 2020: 5.0 percent
June 7: 6.8 percent
June 8: 7.0 percent
June 9: 9.6 percent
June 10: 10.6 percent
June 11: 8.5 percent
June 12: 10.2 percent
Despite the increasing numbers, Palm Beach County officials believe they will have permission from Gov. Ron DeSantis to move to a limited “phase 2” reopening soon — that will allow increased capacity in restaurants and other facilities.
