One Local Hospital Continues To Be At ICU Capacity
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Our afternoon report on ICU bed availability in South Palm Beach County appears to be quite similar in count to our report Wednesday night.
These numbers are based on real-time data provided by the Florida Community Coronavirus Dashboard. It was created by Rebekah Jones, the chief data scientist for Florida who was fired. Gov. Ron DeSantis said she refused to follow orders. Jones said she was told to suppress data. No local hospital administrator has disputed the accuracy of her data.
