As of Sunday morning, March 29, state officials show 4,246 Coronavirus positives in Florida, and 486 in the six counties tracked daily by Power Broker Media. This graph shows where we stood as of the end-of-day report Saturday. Over the prior 48-hours, Polk and Pinellas had the highest growth rate in cases, while Hillsborough had the biggest jump in case count.
Hillsborough and Pinellas counties have the biggest case counts, by far. They also rank in the top 10 Florida counties for highest case counts. Hillsborough ranks 5th and Pinellas 8th for most people infected by the virus.
In Pinellas, that ratio is dispersed over the top five cities for case counts (St. Pete, Clearwater, Largo, Tarpon Springs and Seminole, in that order). Please note – the figures below are Florida resident cases only, as of March 28 at 10 AM.
Please note – Power Broker Media continues to stress that state officials have not yet adopted non-traditional gender groupings.
In Hillsborough, the youngest victims of COVID-19 are ages 0, 3 and 6, according to the state’s daily report on March 28th at 10 AM. In Pinellas, today’s data show the youngest victim at age 15.
Manatee, Sarasota and Polk have the highest hospitalization rates in Tampa Bay; Hillsborough has the lowest. Power Broker Media will seek more information on the reasons for the vastly differing rates of hospitalizations across the county. Data show some correlation between age ranges and hospitalizations, but age alone doesn’t seem to explain the divergence.
