‘I’m looking for the truth’: States face criticism for COVID-19 data cover-ups (NBC News)

NBC News: ‘I’m looking for the truth’: States face criticism for COVID-19 data cover-ups. “While the U.S. has reported more cases and deaths than any other country, the method for counting COVID-19 deaths varies by state. In testimony before the Senate earlier this month, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, said the actual number of people who’ve died as a result of the pandemic is ‘almost certainly’ higher than what’s been counted. Such data has been the basis for how quickly states are beginning to open up and return to a sense of normalcy. But government officials in a number of states are facing questions about how open and honest they’re being about how the virus is impacting their state.”
