The goal of tRump is to enforce his delusion that covid will just disappear and that if we don’t test we won’t have anymore people with the virus. Deny people the right to the information is another sign of an authoritarian government such as China, Russia, egypt, Turkey and now the US. Later I will show a video of unnamed federal officers and military people snatching non-violent protests off the streets and putting them in rented minivans. Next the numbers of unemployment will disappear, this week another 1.3 million jobs lost. We can not let this happen in the US, yet like so many I do not know what we can do about it. I am glad to finally see some Republican governors speaking out, but I feel it is too late. Hugs
Previously public data has already disappeared from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website after the Trump administration quietly shifted control of the information to the Department of Health and Human Services.
Since the pandemic began, the CDC regularly published data on availability of hospital beds and intensive care units across the country. But Ryan Panchadsaram, who helps run a data-tracking site called Covid Exit Strategy, said that when he tried to collect the data from the CDC on Tuesday, it had disappeared.
CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield told reporters on a conference call Wednesday that states were told to stop sending hospital information to the National Healthcare Safety Network site, the CDC’s system for gathering data, beginning Wednesday. Instead, all data will now be reported through HHS’ reporting portal.
There is much more at the link above and I think you should glance at it. One thing being left out of the reporting is this private company that designed and produced this database system for tRump is one of his wealthy supporters who is taking the company public this week, and the knowledge that the company has a multi million dollar contract with the US government is going to help the stock price soar.
