One thought on “Indiana reports 841 new COVID-19 cases, 15 more deaths

  1. Without question, it is irresponsible to add in the antigen test results to the positivity percentage numbers. The only reason to do so is to ‘cook the books’ so it looks like things are okay here in Indiana.

    The very least they should do is divulge the number of PCR tests and results so that positivity rate can still be useful. That positivity rate is a key decision factor in when schools must go full in-person and when they must go fully virtual. To screw with this data is political, pure and simple — and will leave Hoosiers uninformed on what dangers we face so we can make intelligent decisions about our behavior.
