BEWARE - Florida Covid-19 numbers will be artificially deflated for a few days

State-run labs were closed Thursday afternoon in preparation for a possible hurricane coming thru the state. They will slowly reopen across the state and should all be open by Wednesday, Aug 5.

Now, this isn't ALL labs...just the state-run ones (like Orange County Convention Center). Private labs and hospitals will still be testing.

However, submission of results will also likely be delayed/reduced due to likely lower staffing at labs and at the state DOH.

FL saw the lowest # of tests/cases in about 6 weeks today. That's most likely an artificial drop.

#CongressmanCovid - ah ha hahahahahahaha

Kevin "I know who Putin pays" McCarthy calls Gohmert, "Congressman Covid"


#CongressmanCovid has such a nice ring to it, eh?

I don't think I've ever been this happy to be able to read work emails!!

14 weeks of furlough are finally over!

I was actually starting the process of looking for another job and considering pulling a chunk out of the 401(k)...no longer necessary.

And I am with any and all who are still furloughed, laid off or otherwise jobless or under-employed. Our govt (well, all TraitorGOP members) have failed America's workers immensely They've removed any last semblance of decency over the last 3 1/2 years. They've shown themselves to be the actual enemies of America. Their projection will no longer hold water!


An explanation of Florida's Dept of Health daily Covid report

See thread:


Hope this helps anyone who’s confused by their various types of charts and numbers

Tropical Storm Gonzalo warning cone was *just* updated by the White House


Guess someone's a bit miffed at not being able to sell off Puerto Rico....

FL's 7-Day trends for Covid showing maybe perhaps some signs of hope?

Seeing the 7-day trends either rising more slowly or actually appearing to plateau and even tick downward on some.


All of my data can be seen here:

Today, I got the call!

Next week will be my last week on furlough! After 14 weeks of it I will be officially back to work (remotely) a week from Monday!

Fight Florida Covid propaganda

Ok folks. This news is starting to go viral. Just saw it posted by “louder with Crowder” and Breitbart has been “reporting” it, too.

A local Fox35 reporter finally dug into the FL DoH PDF and saw some oddities in lab results. Several hundred labs (mostly reporting single digit results) had 100% positivity

They contacted a couple of the larger labs (still just a few hundred results total...keep in mind the largest lab used in the state has returned 58,000 positive results) and found positive % were much lower (9.4% and 6%, respectively)

What was going on? Simple

We’re talking like 0.2% of ALL 3.3 Million tests performed since March. Some small labs (all less than ~500 positive results reported, vast majority in single digits) were not submitting negative results to the state

This does NOT affect the # of cases and will barely affect the overall % positive from March til now. So, keep this in mind when conspiracy theory-minded partisans try to use this as some sort of proof that FL is not experiencing a massive surge in new cases (we are)

“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.”


FWIW, I dug in some, myself. I wanted to weed out realllly small labs that were likely used in the beginning when one had to be symptomatic to get a test, which would result in that lab having really high positive rates

So this image is all labs with >75% positive rates but >50 positive tests

Amounts to 7,608. Note we’ve had 3.3 Million tests overall since March so this % is minuscule and not gonna affect anything really
