FLORIDA INFECTION COUNT RISING AGAIN, NOW 8,541 NEW CASES LOGGED, SEVEN DAY HIGH
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Florida’s infection count is steadily rising again and significant death counts are still being recorded and reported. On Friday, through 11:59 p.m., the Florida Dept. of Health says 182 COVID-19 deaths were added to the books, with 8,541 new infections. That’s a 7-day high. The positivity rate, for all of Florida, is 9.91-percent, according to health officials.
In Palm Beach County, 449 new confirmed COVID-19 cases were added on Friday through 11:59 p.m. with 10 new deaths. The positivity rate remains questionably low — 7.5-percent. We maintain that the sudden drop reported by the Florida Dept. of Health is not unrelated to Palm Beach County Schools starting in just a few weeks and Gov. Ron DeSantis’ continued push to start schools in person — and now school sports.
Palm Beach County has recorded a total of 36,600 COVID-19 cases with 929 deaths. Statewide, Florida has recorded 526,577 infections with 8,109 deaths.
