Maryland coronavirus positivity rate is unreliably low, Franchot says

Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot said Monday he's not backing down from his push for the state to change how it reports the spread of the coronavirus. Gov. Larry Hogan frequently uses the so-called positivity rate of coronavirus to justify decisions on the state's reopening and push schools to return to in-person instruction. But Franchot said he believes the rate, as touted, is unreliably low, telling the 11 News I-Team that political pressure is involved.
