CDC COVID “Dashboard” Reinstated After Complaints

  • July 17, 2020

The Washington Post (7/16, Sun, Goldstein) reports, “On the eve of a new coronavirus reporting system this week, data disappeared” from a CDC website. The dashboard “and another daily CDC report on the pandemic” were reinstated following “an outcry – including from other federal health officials.” The Post says “the disappearance of the real-time data from the CDC dashboard...was a ripple effect of the administration’s new hospital reporting protocol that took effect Wednesday, according to a federal health official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.”
