Stephen King Fake News Twitter Screed About Florida's COVID-19 Deaths Goes Viral


Novelist Stephen King has spread misinformation on Twitter about Florida’s COVID-19 deaths, incorrectly claiming the state had 1,200 deaths in just one day in an apparent confusion between reported deaths and actual deaths that occurred that day.

In a hysterical tweet, Stephen King claimed Florida had 1,200 dead of COVID on Thursday. “Not the total for a week or a month, but ONE SINGLE DAY,” the Pet Cemetery and Misery writer added.

1200 dead of COVID yesterday in Florida.
Not the total for a week or a month, but ONE SINGLE DAY.

King appears to be referring to reports of the latest CDC figures for Florida, showing an increase of 1,296 deaths on Thursday from the total reported a day earlier. The figure doesn’t represent deaths that occurred Thursday but rather deaths over an undefined period that can go back weeks.
