Florida and Georgia facing scrutiny for their COVID-19 data reporting – The Philadelphia Tribune

Florida and Georgia, two states that were among the first to announce the reopening of businesses and public spaces, have come under scrutiny for the accuracy and transparency of their reporting on COVID-19 cases.

In Florida, Rebekah Jones, the official behind the state’s “dashboard,” a web page showing the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths, said she was removed from the project and questioned the state’s commitment to accessibility and transparency, according to Florida Today.

And in Georgia, data tracking COVID-19 cases has come under question after a misleading chart was posted on the Department of Public Health’s website with the dates out of order, suggesting cases were declining over time, according to an article by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
