Erie Times E-Edition Article- Record virus case count was ‘data dump’

Posted by M. C. on June 9, 2020

Erie County residents were surprised Saturday when the Pennsylvania Department of Health reported 31 COVID-19 cases in the county.

The good news is that the high number was due to a backload of cases reported by one of the state’s commerical labs

It is not known at this time how long ago those people were tested and how it might affect the county’s ability to advance to the green phase

Has anyone figured out whether Erie County has 3 or 4 COVID “related” deaths?

How can the county not know when the tests were taken? This puts the whole state and county system in question until a full audit is performed.

is not known”. What is known is that Erie County lives and lively hoods are dependent on how this operation is run. Is this data dump a one time occurrence or has it affected Erie County from the start?

Imagine scaling this up to New York City and Italy then add the government payouts and you will know why I do not take any COVID statistics at face value.

It will take years and Wikileaks before we know the truth, if ever.

Erie County residents were surprised Saturday when the Pennsylvania Department of Health reported 31 COVID-19 cases in the county.

It was the county’s highest one-day number since the pandemic started.

The good news is that the high number was due to a backload of cases reported by one of the state’s commerical labs, said Nate Wardle, press secretary for the state health department.

Wardle said in an email that “data dumps” like these are taken into consideration by state epidemiologists when tracking diseases.

“That is taken into consideration, as the cases may not be from just the last several days,” Wardle said.

It is not known at this time how long ago those people were tested and how it might affect the county’s ability to advance to the green phase of the state’s COVID-19 reopening plan.

Erie County reported 370 cases as of Sunday. It also reported that the number of negative cases has increased to 6,647.

There are 225 recovered patients and 139 active cases, according to the county.

The state Department of Health reported that Erie County had 11 confirmed COVID-19 cases on Monday, increasing its total for the county to 378 cases.

State and county numbers can differ based on the time of day cases are reported, among other factors. Contact David Bruce at dbruce@timesnews. com.
