Coronavirus: Government criticised over use of testing data

02 June 2020 – BBC News

The UK’s statistics watchdog has criticised the Government over its handling of coronavirus testing data.

The Chairman of the UK Statistics Authority said that the presentation of figures appeared to be aimed at showing “the largest possible number of tests, even at the expense of understanding“.

Sir David Norgrove wrote to Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, saying the information is incomplete.

The Government responded saying that it releases full data.
