If you’ve received an erroneous COVID-19 test result, the Ohio Auditor’s office would like to hear from you through an online portal set up specifically for that purpose.
The Auditor is seeking tips from anyone that has received a notice from the State or County Health Department or a medical provider with what they perceive as erroneous COVID-19 test result.
This could include test results that were later reversed or results for test that was never taken.
Auditors from five states, Delaware, Florida, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and Ohio established the online reporting portal to review their respective states’ COVID-19 data for accuracy.
Information from these individual cases will allow auditors to examine the reliability and accuracy of COVID-19 data reporting procedures in their states.
The office is only interested in first-hand accounts to establish facts or debunk the rumors.
Ohio Auditor Keith Faber said recently that his office verified five cases in which people who had never taken a COVID test received notification that they tested positive.
