News Outlet Corrects Story Claiming Texas COVID-19 Death Rate Highest Since March 2020

Axios on Monday corrected a story that claimed the COVID-19 death rate in Texas reached a high not seen since March 2020.

Axios claimed that “the state’s seven-day coronavirus death rate reached its highest levels since March 2020.”

COVID-19 is the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, also known as the coronavirus.

The outlet later updated the piece and added a correction.

A post on Twitter promoting the false information remains up. Axios appended another tweet to it, alerting followers to the correction.

It’s the second time in recent days that a news outlet has had to correct false information about the COVID-19 pandemic in Texas.

The Texas Tribune claimed last week that over 5,800 children were hospitalized in the state in a single week in August.

The outlet later corrected its piece, telling readers: “That number correctly referred to children hospitalized with COVID-19 since the pandemic began. In actuality, 783 children were admitted to Texas hospitals with COVID-19 between July 1 and Aug. 9 of this year.” – READ MORE
