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

Since the beginning of this pandemic, the Trump Administration has taken disturbing steps to control the narrative, from calling it a hoax to lying about testing to demanding economies and schools open in the face of rising cases.

But now, because they cannot fight the data, they are simply covering up the data. 

This week, Trump ordered all hospitals to STOP reporting statistics to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and instead direct that info to a private contractor hired by Health and Human Services. The key difference? The CDC makes the information public, so that our media, researchers, and voters have access to how widespread the pandemic has gotten. But it won’t be public now – and Trump will be able to manipulate the numbers however he pleases.

Call or email your Governors and Members of Congress and demand they defy Trump’s schemes to keep the pandemic data hidden, and release statistics to the public by any means necessary. 

Hospitals are now scrambling to adjust procedures, as Trump’s abrupt rule change gave no lead time to prepare for the transition. 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 a deadly cover-up and we MUST have access to the data. It’s time for our leaders and hospitals to defy orders to keep us safe.

Email or call your Governors and Members of Congress and demand they keep pandemic data public – even if that means breaking with Trump’s orders to release it.
