Department Of Health Appears To Suppress Death Data As President Trump Discusses Florida Rally While Battling COVID

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — In what appears to be a blatant attempt to suppress COVID death data, the Florida Department of Health has removed the daily death counts from its COVID-19 reports. Look at the two items below. The first shows “new deaths” in a report issued on October 8th. The second graphic is today — October 9th. The “new deaths” line item doesn’t exist. Simple math reveals 118 COVID-19 deaths were logged Thursday through 11:59 p.m. in Florida.

Why the Department of Health removed this data from it’s daily report is unclear. The “new death” line item has been in the daily report since March.

DOH October 8
The Florida Department of Health reported deaths every day through October 8, 2020.
DOH October 9
But the Florida Department of Health removed the “daily death” count on October 9, 2020.

Florida recorded 2,904 COVID-19 new infections on Thursday through 11:59 p.m.


There are now 728,921 recorded COVID-19 infections in Florida with 15,186 deaths. 130 new infections were logged in Palm Beach County on Thursday through 11:59 p.m. Again, the death count was removed but math shows that 9 new deaths were logged on Thursday, bringing the Palm Beach County total to 1,416 lives lost to COVID-19.
