We're continually learning more about how the coronavirus is not as serious as it was initially made out to be.
Don't get me wrong, this is certainly a virus that is certainly killing people, but not at the rate that the media is portraying.
We've learned that many people are just being labeled as dying from COVID-19 when they actually are not. This was made clear after Project Veritas releases a video with funeral directors in New York City. They're just padding the numbers for political and financial gain.
If you haven't caught that video you can find it below.
But now Virginia is starting to pad numbers in their own way and it really makes no sense to do this. Now what they're going to start doing is count the same person who has tested positive wit they coronavirus as three separate cases of the virus.
So if one person is tested three times and all three tests come back positive, it comes back as three virus reports.
Governor Ralph Northam’s response team is explaining why the commonwealth has lagged in testing when compared to other states.
The state saw a historic increase in testing numbers Friday, jumping 15% in the last 24 hours, but a change in the methodology is behind the spike.
“You need to know the exact number of tests not the number of people who had tests,” said Dr. Daniel Carey, Virginia Secretary of Health and Human Resources.
During a COVID-19 briefing, The Virginia Department of Health announced it will now count the number of positive virus tests instead of the number of people who test positive.
That means if one person is tested three-times and all three tests come back positive, it counts as three instead of how the numbers were being counted before, which would have only been one because it was a single patient.
