BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There are at least 176 people hospitalized with the “primary diagnosis of COVID-19” in Palm Beach County as of 6:30 a.m. Monday morning, according to the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. That is the highest population of COVID-19 “primary diagnosis” patients in Palm Beach County in at least two months, according to our internal records. Palm Beach County is behind Miami-Dade (370 patients) and Broward (302 patients) on Florida’s east coast.

“Primary Diagnosis of COVID-19” is an official term used by the State of Florida.

ICU bed capacity remains at an acceptable level in Palm Beach County with 39.20 percent available early Monday. Healthcare professionals say that anything under 25 percent is a problem.

Wellington reports 2 available beds with 26 beds in use, West Boca Medical Center reports 10 available ICU beds with 6 in use, Delray Medical Center reports 17 ICU beds in use with 33 available, and Boca Raton Regional reports 24 ICU beds in use with 16 available.
