CDC Corrects Florida Covid Data After Receiving Complaint

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its data on Florida’s Covid-19 case count after the Florida Department of Health made a public complaint. On Tuesday, the CDC posted data that the state’s health department called “false” and combined multiple days of data in one to mislead the public.

The Daily Wire reports:

“Wrong again,” the Florida DOH noted on Twitter. “The number of cases [CDC] released for Florida today is incorrect. They combined MULTIPLE days into one. We anticipate CDC will correct the record.”

The tweet referenced a South Florida Sentinel report, which alleged that Florida “hit yet another record number of new daily cases, reporting 28,317 on Sunday.”

The Florida DOH, instead, claimed that there were 15,319 cases on Sunday — still a high — as well as a three-day rolling average of 18,795 cases. They alleged that they follow the CDC’s own guidelines for collecting and reporting data and that the state had yet to cross 20,000 cases.

On Wednesday, the CDC acknowledged an issue with its case count, according to Fox News, and told the network it was updating its COVID-19 case tracker and “working with the state’s health department to correct the information.”

Recently, the media has paid close attention to Florida’s and other red states rising Covid cases while Democrat-led state begin reimposing mask mandates and other Covid precautions.

Everything one reads in the media should be taken with a grain of salt. Much of it (MOST of it) is written by liberals/Democrats. Be very careful about what you read and where you get your news. Now that Rush Limbaugh is gone, listen to Sean Hannity – if you want the truth, of course.

What’s the data for California, New York, Illinois, New Mexico? Texas and Florida are only two states, where’s the coverage on the largest Blue States. Hypocrites who throw stones while living in glass houses are called Democrats.
