HERE’S WHY YOU’RE SEEING TWO NUMBERS: 10,528 and 8,933 INFECTIONS
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There is a numbers game being played by the COVID-Deniers and the people who focus on science and facts. We want to spell it out as only BocaNewsNow.com can.
The State of Florida releases two daily “infection” numbers. There is the “infected Florida resident” number which is the number the State likes to publicize on its dashboard and in advisories. There is also the “everyone tested in Florida” number which is always the “larger” number. This is the number that the some state officials, many Republicans, and people who believe COVID is fake like to ignore.
That total number, of course, is the only number that matters.
To suggest anything different is to suggest that a resident of Florida can’t be infected by someone visiting Florida. If you tested positive in Florida, you either caught it here or brought it here.
To suggest anything different is to suggest that a resident of Florida can’t be infected by someone visiting Florida. If you tested positive in Florida, you either caught it here or brought it here, so it matters.
So when you see 8,933 residents versus 10,528, understand the difference. If you’re a denier, go with the lower number. If you are intelligent and understand that COVID-19 doesn’t distinguish between visitors and residents, know that the total number is the real number.
