President Trump recognizes that the numbers don’t add up. So, just as he took the swamp rats by the tails with the VA, he’s doing the same with America’s hospitals.
No longer will they report to the CDC, where data can be manipulated. Instead, hospitals will report directly to the White House.
This is bad news for liberals. Their ability to manipulate the numbers with the intention of inciting panic is no more. And while leftists are already crying foul, the truth is that the new reporting will be both faster and more reliable.
As NBC reports:
Michael Caputo, assistant secretary for public affairs for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, said in a statement to NBC News that it would be a faster system.
He said that the CDC has about a one-week lag in reporting hospital data.
“The new faster and complete data system is what our nation needs to defeat the coronavirus and the CDC, an operating division of HHS, will certainly participate in this streamlined all-of-government response,” Caputo said. “They will simply no longer control it,” he said.
The Times reported that the HHS database that will receive new information is not open to the public, which could affect researchers, modelers and health officials who rely on CDC data to make projections and decisions.
Caputo told The Times that the CDC would still make data public.
In the statement to NBC News, he said the CDC’s data gathering once worked well but was inadequate today.
“The President’s Coronavirus Task Force has urged improvements for months, but they just cannot keep up with this pandemic,” Caputo said. “Today, the CDC still provides data from only 85 percent of hospitals; the President’s COVID response requires 100 percent to report.”
Well that just blows the liberal rhetoric out of the water. Trump’s system wants all the numbers. Every single one. That just doesn’t fit well with the claims that Trump is out to hide the numbers.
I just have one question. How long will it take to tabulate the fact that coronavirus isn’t half the threat liberals promote it to be.
