As reported by the COVID Tracking Project, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases statewide jumped to over 15,000, but only a 10.7% infection rate when measured against 143,000 COVID-19 tests taken. In Palm Beach County, Broward and Martin, 3922 people have been diagnosed since the emergency began.
According to Robert Rodriguez, CEO of Helix Urgent Care "The fact only 10.7% of the people tested positive means nearly 9 out 10 people experiencing symptoms and getting tested have other maladies. Flu, strep, and other upper respiratory infections are still prevalent in Florida even as we enter spring. Sick patients need care and lockdowns stop them from that. We even hear reports of individuals dying alone in homes. Afraid to go out and then too sick. That has to change."
Helix Urgent Care is advising emergent care patients to call 888-94-HELIX to confirm an appointment or an Online Telemedicine visit. Employers can ask to speak to Business Development for on-site or in-office Back-to-Work evaluations by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and requesting more information.
