The Florida Department of Health reported a 98% positive rate for Orlando Health.

However, Orlando Health officials say that is incorrect.

"The 98% positivity rate for Orlando Health is not correct," officials said in a prepared statement. "Our positivity rate is 9.4% as of July 12.

Orlando Health understands this is confusing," officials said. "As you look through the entire Department of Health 'testing by laboratory' site, you will see multiple Orlando Health hospitals listed (as well as multiple hospitals from other large health care systems).

See table below with site page numbers where you can find each Orlando Health listing.
