Charge that Florida manipulated Covid data is dubunked

Charge that Florida manipulated Covid data is dubunked

Has Twitter shut of the accounts of users who keep say that Florida cheated?

Woe is us in Florida. It’s a death trap, Creeping, Covid, misting and crawling into everyone’s nostrils. Florida has manipulated the data to look not so bad–undercounting hospitalization and deaths.

At least that’s what Floridians were told by the blue state sages and the media mouthpieces.

Yet, yet…

It’s bunk. Here’s the evidence: Florida’s Covid numbers were obviously right all along. Turns out the “whistleblower” Rebekah Jones couldn’t come up with evidence. Oh, I know, I’ve linked to one of those crazy right-wing rags, so the debunking must be bunk. And, consequently, debunked.

So, let’s turn to NBC News, which dug up the story:

Florida IG report: ‘Insufficient evidence’ for DeSantis critic’s claims of Covid cover-up

Three accusations by fired health worker Rebekah Jones were “unsubstantiated,” and officials she had accused of wrongdoing were “exonerated.”

A prominent critic of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Covid response made “unsubstantiated” and “unfounded” claims that state health officials had fired her because she refused to present manipulated data online, according to an inspector general’s report obtained by NBC News on Thursday.

Gee, no kidding?

I suppose the conclusions can be read like a “not guilty” jury verdict. Maybe she’s guilty, we just couldn’t get the goods. Here’s the full report. Have at it.

Here’s a link to the CNN report that backgrounds the story.
