The CDC once again proved they shouldn’t be trusted.
They have now been caught withholding key COVID data – many are saying this worsened the United States’ response to COVID.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has withheld valuable data on hospitalizations due to COVID-19 in the United States broken down by age, race, and vaccination status, a failure that critics say worsened the pandemic response.
The agency possesses but has not published critical information on hospitalizations, booster vaccines, and wastewater analyses, several people familiar with the data told the New York Times.
Most notably, the agency withheld granular information about hospitalizations broken down by age, race, and vaccination because it feared that the public would misinterpret the data, an official told the publication.
It also did not make public information about the effectiveness of booster shots for adults under age 65. Without the safety and efficacy data of boosters in that age group, federal vaccine experts relied on data out of Israel.
“There’s no reason that [the Israeli scientists] should be better at collecting and putting forth data than we were,” said Dr. Paul Offit, a pediatrician specializing in infectious diseases at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. “The CDC is the principal epidemiological agency in this country, and so you would like to think the data came from them.”
