TOMPKINS COUNTY, N.Y.—A strange discrepancy exists in the reporting of COVID-19 deaths between Tompkins County and New York State, one that after some questions doesn’t seem easily explained.
Tompkins County, as most are familiar with by now, maintains a graphic that is updated daily informing the public of the current COVID-19 environment in the county, including data surrounding tests, vaccinations, hospitalizations and deaths. Currently, the count of deaths sits at 27, many of which have reported from outbreaks at local nursing homes.
