Trump Administration Tells Hospitals to Send Coronavirus Data to HHS, Not CDC

Summary from the AllSides News Team

The Trump Administration has ordered hospitals to bypass the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and send all coronavirus patient information to a central database at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in Washington. Health officials are raising concerns that the data will be politicized or withheld from the public, while HHS says the CDC's system of reporting is slow and inadequate, and that the data will still be made available to the public.
