Today’s Action: Demand our leaders defy the #CovidCoverUp and keep data public

Last week, Trump ordered hospitals to stop reporting statistics to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and instead direct that info to Health and Human Services (HHS). The key difference? The CDC made the information public, so that our media, researchers, and voters have access to how widespread the pandemic has gotten. But it isn’t public now – leading many to believe Trump plans to manipulate the numbers.

HHS is now predicting death rates will fall over the next few weeks…in direct contradiction to CDC forecasts saying the exact opposite, that death rates are on the rise. And many state governments have lost access to their local data, leaving governors guessing at who is right and how to respond.

Call or email your Members of Congress tell them to force Trump to move pandemic data back to CDC. We need public, accurate data to save lives. 

The new HHS reporting system is burdensome and manual. Hospitals that are slow to transition are being cut off or cut short from the life-saving drugs, PPE, and other medical supplies they need to help their patients.

Trump’s stated reason is that the CDC isn’t fully equipped to handle the caseload, even though it’s literally been built to address a public health crisis. So if that’s the case, the CDC needs boosted support and funding to address any issues.

This is looking like a deadly cover-up and we MUST have access to the data.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and tell them to pass legislation forcing Trump to return data collection to CDC’s transparent process. Tell them pandemic data MUST be kept public
