BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — KINSA, the company behind Healthweather and the exceptionally popular KINSA connected thermometer just lowered Palm Beach County to the “green” zone for COVID illness risk.
That is monumental.
Kinsa, considered the preeminent data aggregator for virus spread nationwide, accurately predicted the spread of COVID-19 well before most others caught on. Kinsa uses anonymous data from its “connected thermometers” to determine what is normal and what isn’t when it comes to illness in a community.
Kinsa now says the risk of contracting COVID in Palm Beach County is low — coming in at a “22.” The green zone spans from 0 to 24. Palm Beach County had been in “yellow” for several weeks, and “red” for much of the past year.
While the news is good, Kinsa does warn that the situation is not yet perfect, writing: “There is a low risk of illness in Palm Beach County. COVID-19 cases are moderately high and falling, while Influenza (flu) cases are very low and falling.”
