Wilton leader wants state to change COVID test reporting stats

A Wilton official is asking the state change the way it reports a key coronavirus data point.  First Selectman Lynne Vanderslice says the Department of Public Health is no longer reporting the number of patients tested and instead is reporting the number of tests administered.  She says that makes the information less useful because if a patient had more than one test or more than one specimen was taken, each is counted individually.  Vanderslice is asking for the information to returned to the reporting, or add a new line item for tests administered.  She notes that one of the barometers to assess adequacy of the level of testing is the percentage of the population tested.
