[Official Florida Dept. Of Health Graphic. June 20, 2020]

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The median age of those infected with COVID-19 in Palm Beach County has dropped dramatically, with the most recent infections in Palm Beach County including a 5 year old girl, a new born boy and a 3 year old boy. Other infections just reported include several between the ages of 18 and 24.

We reported just weeks ago that the median age was in the high 50s. It’s now just 44. Why is the number dropping? Experts suggest to BocaNewsNow.com that it’s younger people, refusing to wear facial coverings, believing they are invincible.

Among the most recent deaths in Palm Beach County from COVID-19: a 47 year old female, a 55 year old male, a 56 year old male, a 51 year old male, a 41 year old male and a 22 year old female.

The Florida Department of Health reports at least 468 deaths in Palm Beach County with 10,506 infections. There are at least 93,797 infected people in Florida.
