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.
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.
