Virginia Admits to Counting Same Person Three Times if They Received Three Different Tests

Sharing is Caring!

More fakery with #Coronavirus data: If the same person is tested three times and comes out positive, Virginia counts it as three separate cases. Another way to pad the numbers!

Covid the magic multiplying virus. Virginia – if they tested the same person 3 times, and they died of Covid, 3 deaths.

RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) – Governor Ralph Northam’s response team is explaining why the commonwealth has lagged in testing when compared to other states.

The state saw a historic increase in testing numbers Friday, jumping 15% in the last 24 hours, but a change in the methodology is behind the spike.

“You need to know the exact number of tests not the number of people who had tests,” said Dr. Daniel Carey, Virginia Secretary of Health and Human Resources.

During a COVID-19 briefing, The Virginia Department of Health announced it will now count the number of positive virus tests instead of the number of people who test positive.

That means if one person is tested three-times and all three tests come back positive, it counts as three instead of how the numbers were being counted before, which would have only been one because it was a single patient.

“We realized for Virginia that that change in methodology made a clear sense because we want to make sure that other number that we’re reporting since so many folks are focusing on that as we move into the phases so as one of the important indicators,” said Dr. Carey.

Other states, including North Carolina, have been reporting testing numbers that way for quite some time.
