BY: STAFF REPORT | BocaNewsNow.com
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The United States Department of Health and Human Services Friday reported that Florida added another 23,933 cases of COVID-19 on Thursday.
The report came on the same day that new scrutiny emerged over Florida’s death count. Critics say Florida is reassigning deaths to make it appear that the daily death count is decreasing, when, in fact it is not. Florida has now recorded 40,557 deaths from COVID-19.
The positivity rate, according to HHS, has now soared to 20.24 percent. That appears to be an all-time high.
At least 2,851,402 people have now tested positive for COVID-19 in the State of Florida.
In Palm Beach County, at least 7,799 cases have been logged over the past seven days, and the positivity rate has jumped to 21.88 percent.
Rough 260 Florida hospitals report data directly to the federal government. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blocked the Florida Department of Health from releasing daily, realtime data as the summer began.
