Updated Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This is our COVID-19 “at a glance” infographic and tracker for Boca Raton based on data collected from the Florida Department of Health. For a once a week look at the big picture across South Florida, the state and country, see our BocaFirst Week in Review COVID Tracker published Sundays.
We downloaded Florida’s data on each and every confirmed case, isolated the records for Palm Beach County and did some analysis of cases where the patient recovered versus died. The fatalities did not follow or correlate to the summer rise in cases.

Data presented without commentary or agenda. Using data culled from Florida Department of Health, Agency for Healthcare Administration in State of Florida and worldometers.info, we’ve created graphics to visualize what’s going on locally. See each graphic for the specific sources used. Data in these reports is provisional and subject to change. We update our data daily and publish on Monday, Wednesday, Friday with a “Week in Review/Big Picture” publication late Sunday.

Hospitalized counts include anyone who was hospitalized at some point during their illness. It does not reflect the number of people currently hospitalized.
More information on deaths identified through death certificate data is available on the National Center for Health Statistics website at www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/COVID19/index.htm.

ABOUT THE CASE DATA IN OUR GRAPHICS: Case data is affected by how much testing is done. The percent positive, hospitalization and death rates reflect actual cases of illness in a population. Also, case count totals may be the result of hot spot testing and not accurate in terms of actual number of virus cases in a larger area such as a county or city with a zipcode containing a hotspot. Lastly, zipcodes with hospitals may have counts of patients whose residence is another zipcode but the hospital zipcode was used by mistake in the report.
