Tampa area RN FB post: Florida’s increasing Covid numbers a “blatant lie”

Um…no, they’re not.

Politifact:

Quote

"Don’t believe the hype that Florida numbers are up," her July 25 Facebook post states. "It’s a blatant lie. Many of my other nursing colleagues here in Florida have confirmed this. #exposeitall."

…The next day, the Associated Press reported that Florida accounted for one-fifth of the nation’s new infections last week, more than any other state...60% more weekly cases than the last reporting period and three times higher than the number of cases reported two weeks earlier.

… As of July 27… Florida had 407.3 cases per 100,000 people as of July 27, the second-highest rate, behind Louisiana’s 441… Over the same time period, Florida recorded 370 COVID-19 deaths, highest among the states.

Their ruling? “Pants on Fire”. They reached out to this woman (whose “posts on Facebook and Instagram were flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed”), but she did not respond.

I feel I must apologize in advance for passing this on, as it is obviously just another example of the intolerance of the Left.

I looked up her license - she's really an RN. Embarrassment to the profession. Get out, girl!

Yesterday an ER doctor at the University of Arkansas MC, who identified himself by name and position, tweeted that ICU beds statewide were full and a phone search for out of state placement showed that was the case in 5 surrounding states.

Anyone that reactionary and lacking basic statistical skills doesn’t need to be tossing opinions about anything. Oh, and she’s also wrong.

Well, I never made an assumption about her; the intolerance is mine, “the Left” is me, and I’m proud of it!

Unclear on the difference between anecdotal vs. scientific evidence.

Had my mother's doctor today say that more than 9 in 10 doctors have been vaccinated. That should tell you all you want to know. He said he is sick of idiots getting a platform, especially elected ones.

My esteem went up for him.
