Global Covid-19 case measurement system removed Argentina from their registry due to lack of quality in the testing data

The "Our World in Data" tracker decided to drop Argentina from their tracker for possible bias in the "positivity rate".

Edouard Mathieu, from Our World in Data, posted on Twitter: "To ensure the quality and reliability of @OurWorldinData's COVID-19 testing data, we've decided to remove 🇦🇷 Argentina from our dataset for the time being. The official figures aggregated by the government are not of sufficient quality to correctly reflect the extent of testing."
