Florida COVID-19 Testing Numbers in Doubt After Orlando Health Admits Widespread Reporting Errors
The Florida Department of Health is scrambling after fraud was discovered in how COVID-19 testing rates were being reported across the state.
After the health department released a report showing a stunning statewide positivity rate of 11 percent, analysis of the numbers revealed severe irregularities. Many labs reported 100 percent positivity, meaning that every test came back positive.
In addition to the labs reporting 100 percent positivity, there were other testing facilities that reported abnormal levels of positive tests. FOX 35 found that Centra Care reported that 83 people who submitted tests were all counted as positive. The Orlando Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center reported a 76 percent positivity rate, NCF Diagnostics reported tests at a 88 percent positivity rate, and Orlando Health reported a 98 percent positivity rate.
Orlando Health has admitted that the results from the health department’s report are dubious. They said that their positivity rate was only 9.4 percent, not 98 percent as it was shown in the report. This casts major doubt regarding the accuracy of the total cases that have been reported in Florida.
The fake news has used Florida as an example to bolster their COVID-19 mass hysteria due to all of the supposed cases that were popping up throughout the state.
CNN published a bunch of ridiculous statistics from Florida on Monday meant to terrify and stupify the masses:
What should be a booming tourist destination this time of year is now riddled with coronavirus, dwarfing other states and even entire countries in some metrics.
Here’s what the situation in Florida looks like:
Florida reported its highest number of new Covid-19 cases in one day — 15,300 on Saturday, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
That’s a new record for the most new cases in a single day from any state — including New York state earlier in the pandemic.
It took the entire United States 59 days to top 15,000 combined cases — from January 21 to March 20…
Australia and South Korea both have more people than Florida, but both countries have seen just a fraction of the Covid-19 cases that Florida has.
Australia (population 25 million) has had 9,980 cases of Covid-19, according to data Monday from Johns Hopkins University.
South Korea (population 51 million) has had 13,479 coronavirus cases as of Monday.
Florida (population 21 million) has had 282,435 Covid-19 cases by Monday, according to Johns Hopkins…
Six months ago, the world thought this new coronavirus was contained to China — specifically, the Wuhan area.
But now, the entire country of China has less than 1/3 the total Covid-19 cases that Florida does, according to Johns Hopkins data. As of Monday, China had 85,117 total cases since the pandemic started, compared to Florida’s 282,435…
Italy came under worldwide scrutiny for its handling of Covid-19 as the disease quickly spread out of control.
But after strict government mandates, the country has managed to quell the virus and has largely returned to normal.
As of Monday, Italy (population 60 million) had 243,230 cases from throughout the pandemic. Florida (population 21 million) has already surpassed that number, at 282,435…
If Florida were a country, it would rank No. 9 in the number of Covid-19 cases worldwide, according to Johns Hopkins data Monday.
Eight countries have higher counts than Florida: the United States, Brazil, India, Russia, Peru, Chile, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.
And more than 100 countries have fewer Covid-19 cases than Florida, including France, Germany and Japan.
Reports of these irregularities drive a stake through the heart of the establishment’s fear-driven narrative regarding COVID-19.
