EXTREMELY HIGH PERCENT POSITIVE RATE FOR KIDS 17 AND UNDER IN PALM BEACH COUNTY
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — As parents address the school board during a live stream of the pivotal meeting that will lead to a vote on distance learning Wednesday night, several parents are claiming that kids just don’t contract COVID-19.
The latest numbers from the Florida Department of Health show that children 17 and under in Palm Beach County have a 33.5 percent positivity rate for COVID. To put it another way, out of every 100 kids tested for COVID-19 in Palm Beach County, an alarming 33 or 34 are positive.
Palm Beach County trails only Miami-Dade County (39.7 percent), Pinellas County (40.3 percent) and Manatee County when it comes to pediatric percent positivity of other large (based on population) counties in Florida.
Parents during the meeting, which continues until at least 7 p.m., have called these numbers “fake.”
