BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Kinsa HealthWeather just elevated Palm Beach County to its highest level possible for COVID-19 spread. The area has not registered a “99” or “critical” since the peak of the Delta variant spread over the summer.
Kinsa, which utilizes anonymized data from hundreds of thousands of “connected” thermometers that transmit data to their servers, tracks the current spread of illness and compares it to what is normal for a specific time period. Kinsa was credited with accurately predicting the initial spread of COVID-19 and subsequent waves. The data is utilized by public health officials worldwide.
Meantime, the CDC is not updating data on this New Year’s Day holiday, but Palm Beach County Friday reported an unprecedented 26.1 percent positivity rate as COVID-19 spreads, again, unfettered.
There are now 5,215 people hospitalized in Florida with COVID-19, with 1,527 admitted on Friday. 100 children under age 18 were also admitted on Friday.
Friday’s COVID-19 death count in Florida is 41, according to the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
