A report by WOFL-TV states that the Florida Health Department may be massively overstating the number of coronavirus cases in that state. If true, this is a fly in the ointment of the mainstream media that has been trumpeting these numbers as the reason to keep the U.S. locked down.
The Blaze explains:
According to WOFL, the Florida Department of Health has said that “countless” coronavirus testing sites across The Sunshine State have reported a near 100% positivity rate — which means every single person tested was positive— while other laboratories have reported extremely high positivity rates.
But reporters for WOFL reached out to many of those testing sites — and discovered the official figures do not reflect reality.
For example, state data showed that Orlando Health, a local hospital, had a 98% COVID-19 positivity rate. But when WOFL reached out to the hospital, hospital officials said their positivity rate is only 9.4%.
Other sites were reporting similar discrepancies. READ: Florida department of health exposed for massively overreporting positive COVID-19 cases
The question on everyone’s mind is how did this happen? The Florida Heath Department, of course, has its official excuse.
But others wonder….
I am sure it has nothing to do with fact that Florida has been a favourite whipping boy of the mainstream media because the state didn’t fully embrace the lock down message.
