BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The numbers are decreasing now, but the Palm Beach County Director of the Florida Department of Health — Dr. Alina Alonso — is warning the Palm Beach County Commission that a second wave of COVID-19 is quite possible.

Alonso told commissioners during Tuesday’s meeting that there is significant concern over the upcoming flu season and how that relates to COVID-activity.

In the official write-through of Tuesday’s meeting, these notes were put into the record:


“Dr. Alonso expressed concern over the upcoming flu season with a second wave of COVID activity expected, and noted that metrics are needed that will respond quickly to identify hot spots or actions that result in rapid spreaders.”
