An open letter to the U.S. Congress

STOP the WH bypassing CDC on Covid-19 Data

8 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

As you are well aware, we are in the middle of a pandemic. To say the pandemic response has been handled poorly both on the federal level and state level is an understatement. The CDC is supposed to serve as an unbiased scientific platform where data can be collected and used for the betterment of our country as a whole. Let me remind you that CDC stands for Center for Disease Control and Prevention. I cannot think of a time in recent history where controlling and preventing disease was so crucial to our very existence as a nation. With that said, the announcement that COVID-19 hospital data should now be sent to the White House rather than the CDC is abhorrent. The White House has been manipulating the truth about this pandemic since before we even knew it was on our shores. Cutting the CDC- THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTRL AND PREVENTION- out of data collection will only serve the White House's agenda and politicize the virus. The change in protocol is being disguised as a way to make data collection more efficient and centralize information, which is complete garbage. The data from the CDC as it stands can easily be passed on to DHHS. I truly fear that this is just another way for the White House to manipulate the truth of what is happening. If nothing else, we Americans deserve a transparent, scientific, and unbiased view of the data related to COVID-19. The scariest part of cutting the CDC out of COVID-19 data collection is the lack of outrage from anyone and everyone. The White House is trying to hide information from researchers, reporters, and the general public. A lack of transparency is only going to make this worse. WAKE THE HELL UP!
