BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The COVID-19 situation in Palm Beach County is quickly and dramatically improving.
Kinsa HealthWeather is reporting Saturday that Palm Beach County is now in in the “moderate risk” zone. Kinsa listed Palm Beach County as “critical” — with a 99 score — just weeks ago. The sudden decline suggests Kinsa’s algorithms are predicting the worst, for now, is behind us.
Kinsa utilizes a network of hundreds of thousands of “connected” fever thermometers that transmit anonymized information to its cloud. Kinsa is credited for accurately predicting the initial spread of COVID-19 worldwide, and continues to accurately predict rises and declines in spread. The system analyzes current illness spread against traditional patterns to determine what is normal and what is not.
As of Saturday morning, 209 adults in Palm Beach County and 5 children under age 18 are hospitalized for COVID-19 treatment. Of those hospitalized, 144 are not fully vaccinated while 33 are. There is no vaccination data for the remaining patients.
The hospital bed situation is improving, although it is still a challenging time for healthcare workers. There are 73 general hospital beds available in Palm Beach County as of Saturday and 29 ICU beds. The county’s pediatric ICUs have six available beds — 54 are currently in use.
The ventilator situation is also improving, although slowly. As of the latest report, 56 ventilators are in use for COVID-19 patients in Palm Beach County, while 87 are in use for non-COVID-19 patients. There are 391 ventilators available.
At least 56,410 people have died, in Florida, from COVID-19 as of Saturday morning.
