The BocaFirst Weekday COVID Tracker

by Jim Wood and Les Wilson

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. The data is presented without commentary or agenda. Using data culled from various official Florida Department of Health websites, 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 strive publish on Monday, Wednesday, Friday but sometimes the data comes in late so our tracker is updated the next morning.

Flattening the Curve in Palm Beach County (weekly)

Every Sunday, we download Florida’s data on each and every confirmed case, isolate the records for Palm Beach County and analyze the cases where the patient recovered versus died. This shows the percentage of fatalities and percentage hospitalizations and how they fluctuate (or not) with the rise/fall of cases. The average age analysis depicts how well we are protecting the vulnerable and building herd immunity as cases rise and fall.

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.
