BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — As Donald Trump officially moved in to Mar-A-Lago, the Florida Department of Health says 12,683 positive COVID-19 tests were recorded in the state. Florida also inched closer to 25,000 dead — recording 161 new deaths.
It’s unclear what that number would have looked like had the Trump administration taken action in the early days of the pandemic.
In Palm Beach county — Trump’s new “home” county — the 100,000 infection mark came and went. 823 new cases were logged on Wednesday with 5 new COVID-19 deaths. That brought the Palm Beach County total to 100,208 infections with 2,066 deaths.
There are now 1,613,884 COVID-19 cases in Florida with 24,739 deaths.
The pediatric positivity rate is now 13.9 percent in Palm Beach County. That includes anyone 18 or under testing positive for COVID-19.
