FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Indiana health officials think they’re doing a good job fighting the novel coronavirus COVID-19, but a nationwide study says the state’s health infrastructure leaves a lot to be desired.

The study, by personal finance website WalletHub, says Indiana has the tenth worst health infrastructure for battling the virus.

The study compared all fifty states across fourteen different key metrics, from public health emergency preparedness funding to the number of hospital beds. Indiana ranked 47th in public healthcare spending, and 48th in epidemiology workforce.

So why aren’t we the 10th State for most deaths and most positive tests? By all means put a report on your website by some company based in Washington DC. It’s a statistical analysis based on specific criteria. Whose? Did your in-depth investigation show anything to the contrary? Was there other national reports supporting this? We’re in a pretty depressing time right now. Questionable negative reporting…try better. Maybe try what’s called “investigative reporting”.
