Rebekah Jones renews COVID-19 criticism. DeSantis says it's a 'conspiracy bandwagon' - 2020-06-24
As the state struggles with a dramatic spike in COVID-19 cases, it's also contending with criticism from the woman who designed the state's public display of COVID-19 data, Rebekah Jones.
Jones was unceremoniously fired after claiming her supervisors were trying to make her manipulate data.
Rather than go away quietly, Jones designed her own competing dashboard, one that draws upon state data but offers an expanded menu of metrics, including hospital bed availability by facility, a key number, especially now as the number of confirmed cases soars. She says the state continues in its effort to twist the COVID-19 data for political reasons.
