BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — If eating in restaurants seems like a good idea to you, then just disregard the 19,473 new COVID-19 cases logged in the State of Florida on Wednesday. You should also ignore the 164 deaths. And give no thought to the 11.60 percent positivity rate recorded on Wednesday, as well.
While you’re at it, never mind the 1,429,722 COVID-19 infections recored in Florida since the pandemic began, or the 22,418 people who are being mourned by family and friends.
In Palm Beach County, where leaders Thursday had to remind people in a news conference to keep wearing masks, 1,146 infections were added on Wednesday with ten new COVID-19 deaths. The positivity rate in PBC for Wednesday is 10.25 percent.
The total infection count in Palm Beach County is now 88,852 with 1,933 deaths.
The pediatric positivity rate in Palm Beach County has risen again — it’s now 13.0 percent. The Florida Department of Health labels anyone 18 or under as being “pediatric.”
