CDC admits to giving misleading COVID-19 testing data. Several states have been making the same mistake.

Recommended Posts

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention admitted that it is combining viral and antibody tests when reporting its overall testing totals, a decision which scientists say paints an inaccurate picture of the state of the pandemic in America.

The test mix was first reported by NPR's WRLN station in Miami after a nationwide analysis found major discrepancies between state reports on testing and CDC reports."

I don't think it's a mistake.

It can't be a mistake.  There is federal money involved.
