    Orange County erroneously inflated its COVID-19 testing numbers for more than a month — logging 30,000 more tests than it should have — before the error was discovered and fixed, officials acknowledged this week.

    The county has counted coronavirus testing in a way some consider misleading, reporting total tests performed, but not how many individuals were tested (some people are tested multiple times).

    This error may stoke further skepticism in the numbers.

    “That’s quite concerning,” said Eva O’Keefe of San Clemente, founder of Stay Healthy OC/COVID-19, a Facebook group with nearly 500 members that tries to deal in data, not rumors. She has been asking the county to explain puzzling changes in reports on testing, hospitalizations, ICU beds and more — and hasn’t been getting clear answers.

    “We need a lot more transparency,” she said.

    Just when I what to give the benefit of the doubt to "them" something like this pop up. If they want us to believe them then be honest all the time.

    That should be "deliberately" not "erroneously". The same thing has happened in Florida, and probably in every state. I have said this several times that A TOTALLY INDEPENDENT COMMISSION should have been set up months ago to examine all the records in all the states and determine the reliability of the reports. Over-counting has been said to be between 25-30%, but chances are it could well be 50%.

    And while this was going on another TOTALLY INDEPENDENT COMMISSION should have been set to examine voter rolls and voting procedures in every state in order to determine the degree of voter fraud to be expected in the upcoming elections.

    @historyb @Enoch111

    I noticed that the white house has criticized Fauci and the CDC recently. Could Trump possibly be waking up???

    I think he woke up a while ago but he doesn't need the extra stuff that comes from firing fauci and his ilk right now so Trump demoted Fauci until after the election.
