Florida Official Death Count Curiously Stays Below 17,000 On Election Day

Official Florida Department of Health Graphic for November 3, 2020

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Florida’s death count is now officially 16,890 as the positivity rate statewide hit 7.58 percent. That’s a record high for at least the past two weeks. The state added 4,595 new COVID-19 infections. 56 COVID-19 deaths were logged Monday.

Rebekah Jones, the fired State of Florida data analyst who continues to churn out data considered legitimate, says the death count is 17,043. It’s unclear if Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis – – who predicted a Trump victory on national television Tuesday morning — is behind the Florida Department of Health’s seemingly contrary numbers.

In Palm Beach County, the positivity rate is getting attention. Palm Beach County just hit a two week high of 8.30 percent. 365 new COVID-19 infections were added Monday through 11:59 p.m. The death count is now 1599 — that’s a one day increase of four.


There are now a total of 53,511 COVID-19 cases in Palm Beach County with 1,599 deaths. Statewide, Florida reports 816,700 COVID-19 infections with 16,890 deaths.

There is a notable upward trend for weekly ER visits in Palm Beach County for people with COVID-19 symptoms, as evidenced by the DOH graph, above.
