BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — At least 71 people died from COVID-19 in a Florida hospital or medical facility on Friday, according to data released Saturday by the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
HHS also reports that 2,371 adults and 106 children under age 18 were admitted to a Florida hospital for COVID care on Friday. That brings the latest total to 11,568 beds in use — in a Florida medical facility — for COVID-19 patients. At least 236 of those hospitalized are pediatric cases.
Also in Florida, the flu continues to be monitored but not a crisis like COVID. No one died in a Florida hospital from the flu on Friday. 110 people are hospitalized for influenza in the state.
Meantime, Kinsa, the company that monitors the spread of disease through the use of hundreds of thousands of thermometers that transmit anonymized data to their servers, reduced Palm Beach County from “Critical” to “Moderate Risk.” Kinsa’s data is used by public health professionals worldwide. The company is credited for accurately predicting the initial wave of COVID.
