California Virus Cases Underreported, Health Official Says


Officials say a technical glitch in the system used to track cases of the virus in California has led to not all cases being reported. The state's Department of Public Health says the Elektronik system used by most local health department statewide to report data about infectious diseases is experiencing serious technical issues, and they say it's resulting in Corona virus cases being significantly undercounted. There were just over 4500 new cases reported Tuesday. About 5700 Monday totals over the two lowest single day increases since early July and abrupt change of the numbers that have been spiking steadily in recent weeks. A note with the Department of Public Health. Latest report says that due to issues with the state's Elektronik laboratory reporting system, the data represent an underreporting of actual positive cases in one single day. Cliff Albert Kogo news
