The CDC quietly adjusted Florida’s Covid-19 numbers after the state’s health department blasted them for combining multiple days of data into one.
The CDC with help from fake news media outlets on Monday reported there was a ‘record’ number of Covid cases in Florida on Sunday.
Every media outlet jumped on the chance to attack Florida and Governor DeSantis with the CDC’s inflated Covid numbers.
“FLORIDA COVID DATA: The state hit yet another record number of new daily cases, reporting 28,317 on Sunday. Here’s the updated state data including cases, deaths, vaccination rates and hospitalizations” – the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported on Monday using the CDC’s inaccurate data.
“Florida reported a record-breaking 28,317 new cases of COVID-19 for Sunday to the CDC.” WSVN reported.
The CDC *knowingly* combined several days worth of reporting and condensed it into one day.
The Florida Health Department took to Twitter to correct the record.
“This is not accurate. Florida follows CDC guidelines reporting cases Monday through Friday, other than holidays. Consequently, each Monday or Tuesday, there will be two or three days of data reported at a time. When data is published, it is attributed evenly to the previous days.”
The CDC waited 24 hours so their lie about Florida could make its way around the world until they adjusted the numbers.
The New York Post reported:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention adjusted its COVID-19 tracking for the state of Florida on Tuesday as confusion over reporting practices sparked a feud between federal and state authorities.
After the CDC website showed record high numbers for Sunday, Aug. 8, the Florida Department of Health balked, accusing the agency of folding several days of new cases into one.
The gap was significant, with the CDC initially claiming there were 28,317 new cases on Sunday, while the Florida DOH puts that number at 15,319.
On Tuesday the CDC adjusted its number down to 19,584.
