Agency revises down state’s weekend numbers from 28,000 to 19,000 but offers no explanation after falsely claiming ‘record’ infections
This was all on purpose, of course.
- CDC has revised Florida’s COVID-19 figures after the state Department of Health accused the agency of overcounting Sunday’s totals
- The federal health agency reported a new record of more than 28,000 cases on Sunday
- Florida’s DOH accused the CDC of combining multiple days’ worth of data into one and that the true figure is really 15,000, which is an overcount of 15,000
- The state reported 56,000 cases from Friday to Sunday and it is believed that the CDC split the total over two days – Saturday and Sunday – rather than three days
- The CDC’s updated Covid numbers, reporting 19,000 on Sunday, are still higher than the figures published by the DOH
- Florida no longer reports daily COVID-19 cases, instead publicly revealing weekly counts every Friday
