BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Just as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis tells local municipalities that they need to rescind fines levied for COVID violations, Florida’s new COVID infection count is still rising.
For the fourth day, numbers have increased. Wednesday’s new case count is 5,065. That follows 3,480 on Sunday, 4,446 on Monday, and 4,898 on Tuesday.
There are now at least 1,962,651 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Florida with 32,040 deaths.
In Palm Beach County, 2,535 people have now died from COVID-19. At least 124,636 have been infected.
There is continued concern that Spring Breakers will fuel another surge in Florida — especially South Florida — just as numbers were starting to decrease. There are 219 people hospitalized in Palm Beach County with a “primary diagnosis of COVID-19.” The statewide COVID hospitalization count is 3,158.
