Covid data

More Bruce Jenner is a girl science.

 

Florida health officials appear to have inflated recent record coronavirus case numbers there by as much as 30%, according to an analysis of data released by the state's Department of Health.

U.S. health officials have been warning for several weeks that COVID-19 case trends in Florida are pointing to a possible looming catastrophe as the state records ever-increasing numbers of the disease. After several months of flat infection rates, positive case results in Florida began rising slowly in mid-June before beginning a steep climb near the end of the month.

Deaths in the state have remained largely flat over that time period, leaving experts struggling to explain why surging case rates have not resulted in an uptick in mortality. One possibility, according to data provided by the state itself, is that the new case numbers regularly posted by Florida health officials have been significantly inflated in recent weeks.

Re: Covid data

Or - people are being sent home, and they die at home, and are not part of the Covid stats, but the death by pneumonia stats.

If you don’t believe Florida is in crisis - maybe you need to talk to a nurse there.  I’m sure she’ll tell you there is nothing going on in the hospital....

Re: Covid data

More fake numbers.

 

During the peak of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic in April and May, Orange County, California health care officials reported inaccurate numbers. For more than five weeks, the county incorrectly included 30,000 serology tests – used to detect whether or not a person has antibodies for the virus, suggesting they previously had an infection – into their "cumulative tests to date" figures, the Los Angeles Times reported. The mistake inflated both the county's testing numbers and the number of positive Wuhan coronavirus cases. 

 

Serology tests give health care providers an idea of how prevalent the virus is in their area but they aren't reliable, especially when determining whether or not a person actively has the infection. 

According to the Orange County Register, the mistake inflated the county's coronavirus numbers by 13 percent.

“I would like to sincerely apologize for any confusion this matter has caused for the community. In the future, [we will] be more transparent with respect to the data that informs policy and personal health decisions of our residents," Dr. Clayton Chau, director of the Orange County Health Care Agency and the county’s interim health office, said during a press conference earlier this month.

The mistake took place from April 28th until it was detected on June 3rd. The Health Care Agency immediately removed those numbers from their data but the website wasn't updated until June 26th. Dr. Chau told The Times the staff attempted to correct the mistake on the website but system glitches prevented the change from taking place.

Re: Covid data

I haven`t been paying attention to the Covid politics, but just as a peripheral observer it seems the Nox crowd is pushing "Covid rates" like watermelon going out of condition.  Not much is being said about death rates.

Re: Covid data

Death rates are probably being skewed, like I showed you before.  How do you trust anything put out by a government being led by the biggest liar of all time?  Really think you can trust any numbers put out by an administration, that has a stake in attempting to win another election?  Better think again - nothing is beyond the web of Trump’s Crime Syndicate.....
