More on Virginia's "juking" of COVID-19 test data...

"In at least one state, Virginia, senior officials are blending the results of two different types of coronavirus test in order to report a more favorable result to the public.
"This harms the integrity of the data they use to make decisions, reassure residents, and justify reopening their economies."
"Many pandemic response efforts assumed clean, standard, accessible data would exist, but it does not. That said, Virginia’s decision to mix the results of two different kinds of tests marks a new low in data standards."
