KinsaHealth Reports Dramatic Increase In Palm Beach County COVID-19 Spread.

Kinsa Health update for May 18, 2022 in Palm Beach County.


BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The COVID situation in Palm Beach County just took a dramatic turn for the worse. Kinsa Health, credited with accurately predicting the first wave of COVID-19 – and all subsequent waves — just elevated Palm Beach County to ”high risk.”

Palm Beach County had been in the ”green” zone — or “low risk” level — for several months.

The elevation comes despite silence from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and his tightly controlled Florida Department of Health. The department, which only releases data every two weeks, shows that the positivity rate for Palm Beach County as of the week ending May 5th is 9.2 percent. Today is May 18th. There has been no official data from the State of Florida in 13 days.

Hospitals are no longer reporting local data regarding how many patients are admitted for COVID-19 on a daily basis.

KinsaHealth uses data from ”connected” thermometers to determine current illness spread versus normal illness spread. The company’s data is used worldwide by public health officials.
