The US government requires domestic hospitals to submit information on the new coronary pneumonia epidemic situation directly to the Federal Department of Health and Human Services from the 15th, no longer reported through the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention .
American hospitals originally reported epidemic data to the National Center for Health Care Safety of the US 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. However, according to the latest requirements of the White House, from the 15th, the hospital will submit these data directly to the Ministry of Health and Human Services. In this regard, the White House stated that 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.
But the outside world is worried that the White House has been marginalizing the CDC. Federal government officials have recently violently criticized the White House Coronavirus key member of the working group Anthony Fudge.
