BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The United States Department of Health and Human Services reports that 65 people died in a Florida hospital from COVID-19 on Monday. But while the death count remains substantial, there is a glimmer of good news when it comes to hospital counts.
In the report out Tuesday morning, the number of hospital beds in use for COVID-19 patients in Florida dropped to 10,893 from Monday’s high of 11,265. We note the high is during Omicron and not for the entire pandemic.
On Monday, 1,831 adults and 75 children under age 18 were admitted to a Florida hospital for COVID-19 treatment. We are expecting new case counts from Florida, and Palm Beach County, to be released later on Tuesday. Numbers were tabulated, but not released, over the holiday weekend.
Meantime, we note that one person died from the Flu in a Florida hospital on Monday, while 42 people are hospitalized in the state for influenza.
