Florida may have ’manipulated’ COVID death data ahead of election: Report

According to reports, Florida potentially ’manipulated a backlog of unreported fatalities’ ahead of the election. The state stopped logging backlogged deaths on 24 Oct and resumed the count on 17 Nov, including the older deaths in its daily counts. This report comes at a time when Gov. DeSantis and his admin have been accused of manipulating COVID-19 data by a former Florida Covid data scientist.

"In the month that preceded the change, from Sept. 23 to Oct. 20, the state included in its daily tallies 1,128 deaths that occurred at least a month earlier — accounting for 44% of the deaths announced during that time. But in the week before the election, the health department included just one such death in its daily tallies." I am not getting into the Florida conspiracy theory, but I did find this aspect of the story interesting. As the argument seems to be that daily death count numbers are heavily made up of deaths that did not occur on the stated day, or even within the same month apparently.
