If a patient tests positive for COVID-19 the Florida Department of Health recommends the patient goes into a two-week isolation period. Once the 14 days are up, the patient is likely to take a COVID-19 test. A day later the patient may take another test for the virus to make sure they are negative.

One person could potentially take three tests in less than three weeks. Some, where there was a second positive test, may take even more before they are deemed clear to go back to work.

understandable stuff, right?

all makes sense.

News4Jax sister station WKMG in Orlando spoke with Dr. Raul Pino with the Department of Health in Orange County who confirmed re-tests are included in the total testing numbers, so when you see 2 million tests, that does not mean 2 million people have been tested.

Gov. Ron DeSantis also said during a press conference that the total number of tests is reflected in the dashboard display.

“It’s not unique individuals, it’s total test,” he said.

State officials have said in recent weeks that increased testing has been at least part of the reason for a string of record-one day cases.

 

Someone gets the Chinese virus.....they get re-tested...still have it..... that retest is counted as a positive test.  So, that person can get tested once a day for 15 days and have it come back positive and they'll be counted as 15 cases of the Wuhan Flu.

 

Question for discussion..................  how many times has this happened throughout the country?

most likely each and every time someone tests positive.

Once politics got involved in this everything went sideways.

I question who is it that wants the numbers to be as high as possible.

 

The multiple testing of one individual, counting as multiple cases is part of the deliberate manipulation that is going on.

Wrong. One positive test and they are done counting you, at least according to the woman who was handling the Florida stats that quit after DeSantis didn't like the transparency of her data. He's a shyster. Don't believe anything that comes out of his mouth. He tried to hide community spread at first by counting the cases from out-of-staters separately. Now it just looks stupid to see that stat there.

The record number of deaths in Florida yesterday was the result of all these people getting repeated tests, correct? Hospitalizations are a secret in this state, but individual hospitals are reporting surges in new hospitalizations. DeSantis, transparent like Obama.

This has been stated before that a person testing positive even months later is only counted once. A person is counted each time a neg result is recorded. So a nurse to pick a person that is tested many times in a month is counted neg each time. 

 

Dont worry the virus is nothing here in Florida. We now have a 20% ratio of positives being shown. At first Florida had to have less than 10% to open safely. That whole idea doesn’t exist anymore.

Multiple tests being counted in the "total tests" count does not infer in any way that the same patient testing positive multiple times counts as more than one confirmed case.   Nothing in either of these quotes makes that inference either.

Don't be one of Smoke and Mirrors DeSantis' suckers.

 

Straight from the Florida Department of health website.

**This percentage is the number of people who test positive for the first time divided by all tests, excluding people who have previously tested positive.

 

 

From North Carolina:

Quote

In the total of laboratory-confirmed cases, each person is counted only once. If a person tested positive more than once (for example, if they were using the test-based criteria for discontinuation of isolation and had 3 total positive tests), they would be included in our case count only once.

 

From Louisiana:

Quote

While individuals may be tested multiple times (and in some instances are positive over many days so may have more than one positive test result), our method only acknowledges the case ONCE. There is a review process to identify and remove duplicate lab reports.

 

Another question we're getting is, "Do our state case counts include results from antibody testing?" That answer is no.

 

The case counts that you see reported daily on the LDH dashboard are individual cases and only reflect positive viral tests.
