An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Preserve the independence of the CDC and Save our LIVES!

82 so far! Let’s get to 100 signers!

It is an enormous concern that this administration has rerouted Coronavirus data reporting and control from the CDC to the Washington DC database. We cannot trust case counts when we cannot trust the office doing the counting. This administration has a consistent and concerning track record of fudging, falsifying, losing, and erasing data, reporting, details and information for the entirety of 45's term. When it comes to understanding disparities in COVID-19 transmission rates, treatment, cure, and deaths, it will be impossible to disaggregate what is hidden and disappeared by this brutal administration. Research in public health, epidemiology, urban planning, sociology, public management and hospital administration are all being preemptively undermined and placing the public interest and LIVES at risk. We demand that leadership ensure the independence of the CDC, the sanctity of public health data and reporting and safeguard our lives from being erased by this administration.
