”As Florida starts to reopen, the architect and manager of Florida's COVID-19 dashboard, announced she'd been removed from her position, Florida Today reported.

Rebekah Jones said in an email to CBS12 News that her removal was "not voluntary" and that she was removed from her position because she was ordered to censor some data, but refused to "manually change data to drum up support for the plan to reopen.”

Standard response will be: "Sounds like a disgruntled employee".

This story is trending heavily on the business analytics / visualization phorums everywhere. Because ALL of us have been asked, at one point or another, to 'Fix problems with the data' by management.

And, hopefully, ALL of us have asked the data to be 'fixed' in the sources rather the analysis.

Integrity of information is critical for trust. Good on her for standing up for the truth.

And.. amusingly enough, there are tons of other datasources out there that display the same data that are not politically 'adjusted'. Johns Hopkins is the general main datasource. So any casual analyst can look and find any differences in FloridaMan's data versus the real data.
