Tens of thousands of coronavirus tests have been double-counted, officials admit

Tens of thousands of Covid-19 tests have been double-counted in the Government’s official tally, public health officials have admitted.

Diagnostic tests which involve taking saliva and nasal samples from the same patient are being counted as two tests, not one.

The Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England each confirmed the double-counting.

This inflates the daily reported diagnostic test numbers by over 20 per cent, with that proportion being much higher earlier on in the crisis before home test kits were added to the daily totals.

RE: Tens of thousands of coronavirus tests have been double-counted, officials admit
the damage to statistics in general has been massive during COVID

now people will not believe any stats.

they will have to believe what they see with their own eyes.

with my own eyes, I don't even know a single person who has been tested.. yet they tell me I'm six degrees from KEVIN BACON
