We've been saying for a while now that the data regarding COVID-19 cases and deaths are not accurate in any way. They are severely exaggerated and many professionals and experts have attested to this. Yet it's still going on to this day.
One scientist, Rebekah Jones actually refused to manipulate the data and because of that, she was fired.
What's even more ironic about it all is that Jones is the person who created the whole COVID-19 dashboard for Florida.
Rebekah Jones said that for “reasons beyond my division’s control,” she was removed from her position as the architect and manager of the Sunshine State’s interactive site on May 5, Florida Today reported.
In an email to CBS12 News, Jones said her removal was “not voluntary” and that it was because she refused to “manually change data to drum up support for the plan to reopen.”
She announced her ouster last week in an email to colleagues, saying her department is no longer responsible for updating information on the site “in any shape or form.”
“I understand, appreciate, and even share your concern about all the dramatic changes that have occurred and those that are yet to come,” Jones wrote.
“As a word of caution, I would not expect the new team to continue the same level of accessibility and transparency that I made central to the process during the first two months. After all, my commitment to both is largely (arguably entirely) the reason I am no longer managing it.”
I just don't understand why people can't just be honest about everything. Why is everything a game about manipulation or a power play? Why can't we all just try and be honest and get along with people? This political game needs to come to an end.
