DeSantis spokesman Fred Piccolo Jr. told the South Florida Sun Sentinel on Wednesday that officials have been struggling to get timely data. He said they’ve been running into the issue of labs reporting on one day the results of positive tests from weeks before.
“That’s a problem,” he said because it makes it harder to spot trends. What is different about the deaths, is that the health department was finding people who were admitted as positive as far back as March or April and who passed away in August or September or October. “Is that a COVID death?”
