An open letter to the U.S. Senate

COVID 19 Data

6 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

Dear Senator, As you know, the Administration has decided to order hospitals to send their Covid -19 Data directly to HHS completely bypassing the CDC. Based on Trumps dismal response to the pandemic, this move is sure to further exacerbate the crisis. There is not much information on how this order was given in the news feeds. Executive order or? I have four questions I hope your team will be able to answer: 1. Does the POTUS has the legal power to give such an order? 2. Is there anything you and Congress can do to force the POTUS to reverse this order? 3. Is there any other official action (besides actions taken by congress) that can be taken to stop or fight this? 4. Is there anything I can do to support quick action to stop this dangerous decision? Given the administrations published reasons for forcing this change (to better manage supply chains etc.) I can see no reason that the Hospitals C-19 Data cannot be sent to both the CDC and HHS. Our experts @ CDC need this unfiltered data to be able to fight this pandemic, not some other version filtered through HHS. I feel it is urgent to address and reverse this decision quickly, as it is a matter of life and death.
