BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — We love doom and gloom as much as anyone in the news business, but facts are facts. The latest facts from a trusted source do not support the growing narrative that COVID-19 is spreading wildly in Palm Beach County. In fact, the opposite seems to be true.

Kinsa Health, which is the company behind a connected thermometer that provided troves of data during the worst parts of the COVID pandemic, says that Palm Beach County is holding at a moderate level of illness, while “COVID-19 cases are very low and stable.” We relied on Kinsa — as did many in the media — to provide an unfiltered look at what was truly happening during the ups and downs of COVID coverage.

Using anonymous data connected by hundreds of thousands of thermometers that transmit to the cloud, Kinsa is able to track current illness spread versus “normal” illness spread. The company was credited for accurately predicting the first wave of COVID-19 worldwide, and then credited repeatedly for predicting and tracking subsequent waves.

While Kinsa held Palm Beach County at a 99 — or “critical level — for weeks or months at a time, it currently says there is little to worry about. There are colds and viruses going around, but COVID seems to be largely under control. Kinsa also reports that all of Florida remains in the “low and stable” category as of its Friday report.
