Jan. 18 (UPI) — The former Florida Department of Health data scientist who says she was fired for refusing to manipulate the state’s coronavirus data announced that a warrant has been issued for her arrest and that she will turn herself in to the authorities.

Rebekah Jones, who helped build the state of Florida’s first COVID-19 data reporting system, has been in a legal fight with the state in connection to her firing in May and her turn as a whistleblower.
