BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A new report says COVID is “spreading” again in parts of Florida, as the unvaccinated are becoming infected, and in some cases dying.

Kinsa, which accurate predicted the early spread of COVID through its “connected” thermometer, just raised Miami-Dade County to “spreading” status. The entire state of Florida was raised by Kinsa to “moderate risk” level days ago. Kinsa’s thermometer sends anonymized information about illness to Kinsa’s “HealthWeather” computer system which is used by health officials nationally to track irregular sickness spread.

In Palm Beach County, Kinsa says the daily new COVID count is “moderately high.” The Florida Department of Health, under the director of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, stopped reporting daily numbers to the public more than a month ago — leaving private companies to reveal the true COVID situation.

Baker County, near Florida’s panhandle, has been elevated to “red” status — the most critical level for COVID infection and spread.

It is unclear what impact COVID is currently having on area hospitals. The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, which had reported realtime hospital census information, stopped revealing that data at the same time Florida ceased reporting daily COVID information.

At least 38,157 people have died from COVID-19 in Florida, according to the State’s most recent report.
