FACIAL MASK ENFORCEMENT MAY START IN DAYS
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — If a picture is worth 1000 words, the graphic above is worth more than 4000.
It’s another record set in Florida for new COVID-19 cases logged in just one day. The Florida Department of Health puts the official number at 4,847 with an unprecedented percent positive of 14.09 percent.
In simple terms: of all the test logged on Friday, 14.09 percent were positive. That is a record.
In Palm Beach County, which may be days away from mandating facial coverings in all public buildings, the story is just as bad. The county added 369 new cases on Friday with a percent positive of 14.0 percent. That too is a record.
Health officials have consistently said the target is no higher than 10 percent.
The official Florida infection count is now 93,797 with a death count of 3,144. At least 12,939 people in Florida have been hospitalized with COVID-19 related issues since monitoring began.
