KINSA: Palm Beach County Drops From Critical To High Risk

Boca Raton Boynton Beach Coronavirus COVID-19 Florida News Palm Beach County

But Concern Remains That New Surge Is Weeks Away



BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) (News App readers click here for full story) — The KINSA Healthweather Map is showing signs of good news for Palm Beach County, but there is increasing concern that the good news may be short lived.

Having spent months in the “critical” zone, Palm Beach County is now in the “high risk” zone for COVID transmission.

KINSA, as has been widely reported, tracks illness nationwide through “connected” thermometers. The thermometers, anonymously, sends the temperature of a user to a database that tracks what’s normal for a region based on time of year. KINSA gained international attention for accurately predicting the initial spread of COVID.

While the downgrade to “high risk” — as bizarre as it sounds — is good, concern continues that a new surge may be just a few weeks away. Health officials say there is more COVID “variant” in Florida than any other location in the United States, and hospital counts are remaining steady.

ICUs in South Palm Beach County remain at or near capacity.
