FOX 35 INVESTIGATES: Florida Department of Health says some labs have not reported negative COVID-19 results

ORLANDO, Fla. - After FOX 35 News noticed errors in the state's report on positivity rates, the Florida Department of Health said that some laboratories have not been reporting negative test result data to the state.

Countless labs have reported a 100 percent positivity rate, which means every single person tested was positive. Other labs had very high positivity rates. FOX 35 News found that testing sites like one local Centra Care reported that 83 people were tested and all tested positive. Then, NCF Diagnostics in Alachua reported 88 percent of tests were positive.

How could that be? FOX 35 News investigated these astronomical numbers, contacting every local location mentioned in the report.

The report showed that Orlando Health had a 98 percent positivity rate. However, when FOX 35 News contacted the hospital, they confirmed errors in the report. Orlando Health's positivity rate is only 9.4 percent, not 98 percent as in the report.

The report also showed that the Orlando Veteranís Medical Center had a positivity rate of 76 percent. A spokesperson for the VA told FOX 35 News on Tuesday that this does not reflect their numbers and that the positivity rate for the center is actually 6 percent.

FOX 35 News went on to speak with the Florida Department of Health on Tuesday. They confirmed that although private and public laboratories are required to report positive and negative results to the state immediately, some have not. Specifically, they said that some smaller, private labs were not reporting negative test result data to the state.

"The Department immediately began working with those labs to ensure that all results were being reported in order to provide comprehensive and transparent data," a spokesperson for the Florida Department of Health said. "As the state continues to receive results from various labs, the Department will continue educating these labs on proper protocol for reporting COVID-19 test results."

Well, what do you know?

From the article:

Good for FOX 35. The question is, why don't more "journalists" (and I use that term loosely as these days, there are fewer journalists and many more opinion writers) actually engage in actual journalism by investigating claims made by government officials, or at least push back when statements of fact are made.

If we had actual journalists in America's newsrooms instead of partisans that are more than happy to perpetuate the left's narrative, perhaps the American public would become informed on current issues of the day and not be the sheep that they seem to be. But then again, a more informed and educated society is antithetical to the brain washed and dumbed down population necessary to accept the left wing agenda.

I guess I answered my own question.

I know this is only anecdotal plus it was from what I heard on a local radio talk show so it's not proof of anything.
But..........
This woman reported that she missed her scheduled coronavirus test because her dog was hit by a car so she was at the vet office. 4 days later she received an email from the doctor's office stating that she tested positive for coronavirus for a test that never occurred.

She also reported that her mutt (her words) suffered a broken rear leg but was expected to have a full recovery. So it's not all bad news.

If this is fake news, please post the sources that prove your contention.
