The Washington Post Reports: Disappearance of covid-19 data from CDC website spurs outcry
Data has now disappeared from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. This led to outcries from the public and federal health officials, which finally forced the Trump administration to reinstate the data and another daily CDC report on the pandemic.
And on Thursday, the nation’s governors joined the chorus of objections over the abruptness of the change to the reporting protocols for hospitals, asking the administration to delay the shift for 30 days. In a statement, the National Governors Association said hospitals need the time to learn a new system, as they continue to deal with this pandemic.
Removal of data from the CDC dashboard is an extension of the Trump administration's new hospital reporting protocol that started on Wednesday.
Without receiving the data firsthand, CDC officials were reluctant to maintain the dashboard — which shows the number of patients with covid-19, the disease caused by the virus, and hospital bed capacity — and took it down, the federal health official said. The CDC dashboard states that its information comes directly from hospitals and does not include data submitted to “other entities contracted by or within the federal government.” It also says the dashboard will not be updated after July 14.
This week, the CDC also stopped putting together reports about trends in the pandemic that was distributed twice a week to states and six days a week to officials at federal agencies
The CDC site had been one of the few public sources of granular information about hospitalizations and ICU bed capacity. About 3,000 hospitals, or about 60 percent of U.S. hospitals, reported their data to the CDC’s system.
Why is the Trump administration trying to hide the truth from Americans?
