Coronavirus positivity rate: Comptroller says Maryland needs to change its reporting

Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot is seeking changes to the way the state's coronavirus positivity rate is reported. In response, the state's top health official said the data is not influenced by political factors. Franchot sent an email Thursday to Gov. Larry Hogan and Maryland Health Secretary Robert Neall, asking them to change methodologies when it comes to reporting coronavirus cases in the state to ensure accuracy and "to better understand the full scope of this pandemic."
