BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — KINSA, the company behind the famed “HealthWeather” map, just raised Palm Beach County to “High Risk” for COVID-19 transmission. Palm Beach County hasn’t been in the “high risk” category for several weeks.
According to KINSA, “Higher risk groups should protect themselves by avoiding all social contact. All. Groups should limit social contact and practice everyday preventive actions.”
KINSA’ s HealthWeather map gained international attention and acclaim when it accurately predicted the spread of COVID-19 in the early days of the pandemic. The map, used by public health officials, pulls data from “connected” thermometers that send anonymous readings to a database. Its algorithm compares “normal” for a certain time of year with real-world conditions.
The warning from KINSA comes as the positivity rate, infection count and hospitalization count rise again in Palm Beach County.
