"Penn State says no players have myocarditis, clarifies Dr. Wayne Sebastianelli’s statement about conference results"

The viral tweet from this morning:

“During his discussion with board members, he recalled initial preliminary data that had been verbally shared by a colleague on a forthcoming study, which unbeknownst to him at the time had been published at a lower rate,” Penn State said in a statement to ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura.

“The research was not conducted by Dr. Sebastianelli or Penn State. Dr. Sebastianelli wishes to clarify this point and apologize for any confusion.”

Penn State’s statement to ESPN went on to say that no Penn State players who tested positive for COVID-19 have myocarditis.
Looks like CNN still hasn't updated their report.
