BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — It is not as a bad as it was, but the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration says at least 190 people are hospitalized with a “primary diagnosis of COVID-19” in Palm Beach County.

That number has held steady in the 185-205 range for the past few weeks.

The lack of continued to decline is concerning to health care officials who fear people eating out, not wearing masks, acting as if COVID is over, and making poor choices will contribute to a dreaded fourth wave. The positivity rate in Florida is the highest its been in more than a month.

The Florida Department of Health reported a positivity rate of 7.56 percent in its Monday report.

As of 6 a.m. Tuesday, 2,923 people are hospitalized in Florida with a primary diagnosis of COVID-19. A total of 46,781 people are hospitalized in the state.
