A data entry error resulted in negative tests being reported for Wednesday's totals on the Alabama Public Health website Covid-19 dashboard this week, the agency tweeted.
The error has since been corrected, the agency said Friday.
No patients received incorrect test results as a result of the error and it only affected the numbers reported for Wednesday on the website, the agency said.
The total new case count was 1,933, not 2,240, the agency said.
