Florida scientist fired for refusing to ‘manipulate’ COVID-19 data

The scientist who created Florida’s COVID-19 data portal was fired on Monday by the Department of Health, she said, for refusing to manipulate data.

Her objective was to create a way for Floridians and researchers to see what the COVID-19 situation was in real time. …She confirmed, as reported by CBS-12 in West Palm Beach that she was fired because she was ordered to censor some data, but refused to “manually change data to drum up support for the plan to reopen.”

…They are making a lot of changes. I would advise being diligent in your respective uses of this data,” she wrote.
