The Florida Health Department is publicly criticizing the Biden administration’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for allegedly posting incorrect COVID-19 numbers from within the state.
The Florida Health Department sent out a tweet on Monday claiming that the CDC combined multiple days of Covid-19 cases, creating a graph they say mislead the public. The department added that they expect a correction for the apparent error. “Wrong again. The number of cases [CDC] released for Florida today is incorrect,” the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) Twitter account wrote. “They combined MULTIPLE days into one. We anticipate CDC will correct the record.”
“The CDC reported 28,317 new cases on Sunday, which WSVN reported would mark the most confirmed infections in one day in the state since the beginning of the pandemic,” Fox News reported. “Multiple media organizations picked up on the number and the department corrected the stories online with some bite.”
The FDOH said there were 15,319 cases on Sunday, and a three-day average of 18,795, noting that the agency follows the CDC’s guidelines for reporting cases, the Fox report added.
