The CDC with help from fake news media outlets on Monday reported there was a ‘record’ number of Covid cases in Florida on Sunday.
“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.
The Florida Health Department scrambled to correct the record as the lie spread like wildfire across several different outlets.
“Wrong again. The number of cases CDC released for Florida today is incorrect. They combined MULTIPLE days into one. We anticipate CDC will correct the record.” The FL Health Dept said.
“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 – AGAIN:
“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 number of cases CDC released for Florida today is incorrect. They combined MULTIPLE days into one. We anticipate CDC will correct the record.”
Another news site reported the CDC’s inaccurate information and sounded the alarm on the record number of Covid cases in Florida.
Again, this is based on MULTIPLE DAYS of reporting into one.
The CDC knows this and falsely reported that Florida is experiencing record number of hospitalizations in an effort to attack Governor DeSantis.
“Wrong. The CDC combined multiple days of data. We anticipate a correction. Please correct this story to ensure accurate reporting to your audiences.” the Florida Health Department said in a tweet to Spectrum News 13.
