A Minnesota physician and lawmaker is under investigation by the Board of Medical Practices for his comments regarding COVID-19.

In a Facebook video Senator Scott Jensen (R-Chaska) said that he was notified by the state Board of Medical Practices that he is under investigation for allegedly spreading misinformation regarding death certificates in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. They also say that he provided reckless advice as a physician by comparing COVID-19 to the flu. 

Jensen has accused the state of inflating the number of deaths from COVID-19

The Board of Medical Practice is tasked with protecting the health of Minnesotans and making sure those who practice medicine are competent, ethical and have knowledge and skills for their roles.
