Florida COVID-19 stats are a joke! Hospitals, labs forced to admit rate is 10X lower than reported
The media’s hair-on-fire reporting on a surge of coronavirus cases in Florida hit a snag of sorts when it was reported Tuesday that some laboratories have not been reporting negative test result data to the state. “Countless labs have reported a 100% positivity rate, which means every single person tested was positive. Other labs had very high positivity rates,” FOX 35 News reported.
More from the Fox affiliate: FOX 35 News found that testing sites like one local Centra Care reported that 83 people were tested and all tested positive. Then, NCF Diagnostics in Alachua reported 88 percent of tests were positive. The report showed that Orlando Health had a 98 percent positivity rate. However, when FOX 35 News contacted the hospital, they confirmed errors in the report. Orlando Health’s positivity rate is only 9.4 percent, not 98 percent as in the report.
The report also showed that the Orlando Veteran’s Medical Center had a positivity rate of 76 percent. A spokesperson for the VA told FOX 35 News on Tuesday that this does not reflect their numbers and that the positivity rate for the center is actually 6 percent.
