BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A 3-year-old boy, a 4-year-old boy, a 6-year-old boy, an 8-year-old girl, and a 9-year-old girl are among the latest Palm Beach County residents testing positive for COVID-19.
Of tests logged as “positive for COVID-19” on July 3rd and 4th, several were children between the ages of 0 and 10. None — according to the Florida Department of Health — appear to be “travel related infections,” meaning COVID-19 was spread locally.
As BocaNewsNow.com reported Sunday, the percent positive of child infections in Palm Beach County is now approaching 30 percent — an extremely high number. The stated goal for counties in South Florida — Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade — is to stay below 10 percent.
Broward County’s pediatric percent positive is now 22.4 percent. Miami-Dade is 29.7 percent. Palm Beach County’s pediatric percent positive is 29.1 percent.
