He looked so honest!!!
Why on earth is Rachel Levine still employed anywhere in the government?
The department he used to lead, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, was apparently one slipshod operation on its COVID response, and is now engaging in some kind of cover-up:

The Pennsylvania Department of Health is refusing to share complete information about how it counted COVID-19 deaths for reports ordered by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
The reports were ordered when the House unanimously approved a resolution in November 2020 requiring the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee (LBFC) to review the Department of Health’s reporting of COVID-19 testing and deaths.
State Rep. Kate Klunk sponsored the legislation, House Resolution 1087, noting that throughout the pandemic, there have been discrepancies in the information published by the Department of Health, including thousands of COVID-19 positive cases being removed from the daily totals, days where there were significant statistical anomalies in the data, the commingling of data, and COVID-19 being listed as a factor of death when the cause of death was something else.
This is the kind of behavior a gamy third-world banana republic, the kind that hides out from the International Monetary Fund’s eagle-eyed moneymen, would be involved in. It’s not the behavior of a first-world state, less still a state like Pennsylvania, which is one of America’s largest and most economically important.
In this case, we see that COVID deaths were added and subtracted with abandon, non-COVID deaths were reported as COVID deaths to get those numbers up and the federal cash flowing in, and the detail that lawmakers are likely most interested in — the seeding of unwilling nursing homes with COVID patients, which in Pennsylvania ensured that 70% of COVID deaths happened in those nursing homes. All of that is being covered up now to legislative auditors under this specious logic:
