COVID-19 CONVERSATION: Fl is Manipulating the Data

No doubt, FL has been manipulating data to force an early opening. Miami-Dade County politicians have been following obediently along. The Miami Hearld reported that infections in Miami-Dade are 10 times! higher than those reported.

There are no easily available Covid-19 data published by local governments in Miami-Dade County. One may wonder on what basis Miami, Miami Beach, Coral Gables and others are making decisions, except from political pressures, business pressures and poor workers’ pressures. Are there objective criteria like Gov. Cuomo developed for NY.

Rebekah Jones, the manager of Florida’s COVID-19 dashboard has been involuntarily removed from her position because she refused to censor some data to, in her own words, “drum up support for the plan to reopen.”
