Two prominent Florida hospitals in Orlando failed to report negative results of the novel coronavirus to the state, which produced inaccurate statistics regarding the number of infections in the state, according to an investigation conducted by a local Fox News affiliate in the region.
Fox News host Laura Ingraham interviewed Tuesday both the local reporter from Fox 35 news affiliate in Orlando, Florida, as well as, Dr. Charles Lockwood, the dean of the University of South Florda’s College of Medicine. He told the “The Ingraham Angle” Tuesday that Florida’s current increase in confirmed coronavirus cases doesn’t come close to what happened in New York and New Jersey.
The doctor said that although Florida’s case count has increased “sixfold since June 10,” neither the number of hospitalizations nor the number of deaths have been as high as other states, like New York.
“Deaths are definitely a lagging indicator,” said Lockwood, and as reported by Fox News.
“But we should now be seeing a much higher case fatality rate. It has been predicted that our fatality rate would kind of do a ‘U’ and be heading back up,” he added. “It’s not. In fact, today in Hillsborough County [where Tampa is located], our case fatality rate was 0.9 percent.”
FOX 35 News reported Tuesday that their reporters had noticed errors in the state’s report on positivity rates. According to the news site the Florida Department of Health admitted that some laboratories have not been reporting negative test result data to the state.
Not reporting the negative health results tremendously skews the statistics. It’s no wonder Americans are so confused as to what to do, or what to believe, with regard to the virus and the epidemic.
It also makes one wonder how many other hospitals and clinics have been making mistakes or failing to report the actual negative numbers.
For example, “countless labs have reported a 100 percent positivity rate, which means every single person tested was positive,” stated the news report.
That just can’t be accurate and for that very reason the news outlet began its investigation.
“Other labs had very high positivity rates,” the news outlet stated. “FOX 35 News found that testing sites like one local Centra Care reported that 83 people were tested and all tested positive. Then, NCF Diagnostics in Alachua reported 88 percent of tests were positive.”
From Fox 35 in Florida:
FOX 35 News went on to speak with the Florida Department of Health on Tuesday. They confirmed that although private and public laboratories are required to report positive and negative results to the state immediately, some have not. Specifically, they said that some smaller, private labs were not reporting negative test result data to the state.
“The Department immediately began working with those labs to ensure that all results were being reported in order to provide comprehensive and transparent data,” a spokesperson for the Florida Department of Health said. “As the state continues to receive results from various labs, the Department will continue educating these labs on proper protocol for reporting COVID-19 test results.”

Run Gen Z founder: Conservatives must win back America’s youth
Mitchell, who was the youngest person to be elected to the Iowa House at 21, admitted that many of the people he attended college with considered themselves to be radically progressive socialists. He added that for many of those students the radicalization didn’t occur at home but on campus. If parents aren’t teaching their children, most of that conversion for the Gen Z generation (known as Zoomers) will then take place on college campuses, and in many cases as far back as elementary school.
“I believe that has happened within our school systems and universities, we’ve seen this progression toward Marxism,” Carter agreed, but noted that like Mitchell, there is a growing movement of young conservative activists as well.
However, it won’t be easy. A recent Morning Consult poll found that only 16% of Gen Z were proud to live in America. It’s an abysmal number, said Mitchell.
Mitchell found that post-college he was able to connect with many young professionals who are a part of a small but growing Gen Z generation. Moreover, he said groups such as Turning Point USA and CPAC, allow younger conservative adults the ability to make connections and network with similar people. It was part of the reason why he founded Run Gen Z, which is an organization that “empowers and mentors young conservatives to run for office.
In fact, Mitchell , was elected at the age of 21, when he first Iowa’s 84th House
District which is located in the southeast region of the state.
The biggest battle for Mitchell is how radicalization of the youth and young adults, he said.
“Even just trying to get them to the middle of the aisle” is difficult, he told Carter.
The issues confronted by the youth in current American culture is that they have -for the most part – been radicalized by the left, he said. There are exceptions to this but it’s a rarity, Mitchell said. He described of his good friends is a leftist and easy to have discussions with.
Mitchell was asked by his friend about the bans on CRT and LGBTQ+ in the school systems and said, “Don’t you think its crazy that you guys voted for that?”
Mitchell responded with, “Think about when you were in elementary, when you were in middle and high school. I went to school in a small town with maybe two people of color in a small class of 30.” Mitchell continued to say, “We learned about the terrible things of what we did to folks that were in slavery, the reconstruction era and the Jim Crow era.”
Mitchell goes on to tell his friend that that wasn’t what they were banning in Iowa in regards to CRT they are banning the “radicalized agenda” that CRT has. Mitchell stated that the curriculum in the USA is “written by people who hate America.”
Sara responded with, “It’s normalizing systemic racism… It driving a wedge between our children, between our family. Its almost as if there is an effort to break down our culture, our nation and our principles.”
