Back Dated

Florida reported 257 died of Wu Ping Cough today.

The thing is the reporting site has a bar graph showing the number of deaths per day.

It shows 20 deaths for today.

How can they disagree by so much?

Because the actual date of death is not reported in the 257.

They didn't die yesterday.  They died somewhere in the past three months.  It takes a not-insignificant amount of time to get tests run and results to be given.  The labs are busy lately for some reason.

The bar graph shifts day to day as the deaths are given their proper time of death.

The media is lying by only reporting the totals when we're well on the other side of the curve.

I can't help but think that it's because our president and governor are from the "wrong" party.

  1. I've been noticing this as well and just recently came to the same conclusion. What I find sad is that the majority of people that I come across only focus on the number and not the when. It definitely creates an incomplete and misleading picture of what is actually taking place.
