Every editor:Peng Shuiping
According to CCTV News, on the 15th local time, the former US CDC Director Richard Besser said that the US federal government’s request for the summary of key data on the new crown epidemic to skip the US Centers for Disease Control and report directly to the Department of Health and Human Services is another”backward” performance in the United States’ response to the new crown epidemic.
Bether said that as of now, the epidemic response of the US federal government is always full of politics. This time, requiring the epidemic data to be reported directly to the Federal Government’s Ministry of Health and Human Services is another retrogressive performance, and the CDC has once again been”aside.” Not only should the data be collected in the CDC, but the center should release the truth to the public through the media every day.
On July 14, the US Department of Health and Human Services confirmed that the latest policy requires the epidemic data to be reported directly to the Department of Health in Washington, not in Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. Besser worries that under the control of the federal government, the epidemic data may”further be politicized.”
The White House requested to bypass the CDC to report epidemic data
According to Xinhua News Agency, the US government requires domestic hospitals to”leapfrog” the information related to the new crown epidemic from the 15th Submitted to the Federal Ministry of Health and Human Services, no longer reported through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The US Capitol Hill Daily reported that the Ministry of Health and Human Services website”quietly” posted new guidance and question and answer documents for hospitals and laboratory departments, requesting that the CDC be bypassed to report epidemic data.
American hospitals originally reported epidemic data to the National Health Care Safety Net of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This network is regarded as the most widely used infection tracking system in the United States. The information tracked by the CDC includes the number of available beds, the number of available ventilators, and the number of new crown cases in hospital.
From the 15th, the hospital will submit these data directly to the Ministry of Health and Human Services. According to the latter, this approach aims to rationalize data collection. These data will provide a reference for the federal level to make decisions on materials and drug distribution.
The outside world is worried that the White House has been marginalizing the CDC. Federal government officials recently vehemently criticized Anthony Fudge, an important member of the White House Coronavirus Response Working Group.
