The CDC is comprised of the best and brightest medical experts in our country. The CDC also has the most experience addressing public health crises in our country.
Given the CDC's level of expertise, as well as its nonpartisan nature, it is appropriate for hospital data related to COVID-19 be reported directly to the CDC.
I urge you call for data to be reported directly to the CDC first, the to their state or the department of HHS.
Thank you for your consideration.
