Missouri Healthcare Director says the state Coronavirus test results could be misleading

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo – The Missouri Healthcare Director Randall Williams says the state has been combining the results of virus tests and antibody tests, which can be misleading to citizens.

Combining these tests makes it difficult to understand how the virus is spreading while also giving the impression that the rate of positive test results is declining.

Williams has said the state wasn’t combining data in the past, but now says he wasn’t aware that it was happening.
