Hospitals Ordered to Bypass CDC for Reporting

Hisoutaks irdered ti byoass CDC

The Trump administration has ordered hospitals to bypass the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and, beginning Wednesday, send all coronavirus patient information to a central database in Washington — a move that has alarmed public health experts who fear the data will be distorted for political gain.

The new instructions are contained in a little-noticed document posted this week on the Department of Health and Human Services’ website. From now on, HHS, and not the CDC, will collect daily reports about the patients that each hospital is treating, how many beds and ventilators are available, and other information vital to tracking the pandemic.

Republican Gov Debunks Right-Wing Coronavirus Theory In Stirring Call For Masks

Tate Reeves

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) is warning his state’s residents not to count on herd immunity for protection from the coronavirus.

Herd immunity is when a virus stops spreading after enough people have antibodies to protect against it, either from a vaccine or from becoming sick. Some ― particularly on the right ― have advocated for a rapid reopening of the economy to allow more people to get sick so the U.S. could quickly reach that level of immunity (although some scientists have warned that antibody protection from infection may not last).

U.S. sets record for new COVID cases third day in a row at over 69,000

Covid-19 updateNew cases of COVID-19 rose by over 69,000 across the United States on Friday, according to a Reuters tally, setting a record for the third consecutive day as Walt Disney Co stuck to its plans to reopen its flagship theme park in hard-hit Florida.

A total of nine U.S. states - Alaska, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Ohio, Utah and Wisconsin - also reached records for single-day infections.

In Texas, another hot zone, Governor Greg Abbott warned on Friday he may have to impose new clampdowns if the state cannot stem its record-setting caseloads and hospitalizations through masks and social distancing.

'Pushing the frontiers': Long lines for COVID tests, stressed labs delay results as demand spikes

Covid-19 test shortage

America’s testing system is once again strained and labs are struggling to keep pace as coronavirus rages faster than ever in the South and West.

From Florida to California, large and small labs running 24/7 can’t process samples quickly enough from millions of Americans tested every week. That means COVID-19 test results are delayed a week or longer in hotspot communities, undercutting public health efforts to track, isolate and prevent spread.

CDC won't revise school opening guidelines after Trump criticism

CDC willl not revise school opening guidelinesCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield said Thursday the agency will not revise its guidance on reopening schools despite President Trump’s criticism that the guidelines were “very tough and expensive.”

But Redfield said the CDC will be issuing additional guidelines on face coverings and symptom screenings for schools.

“It’s not a revision of the guidelines,” Redfield said on ABC's “Good Morning America.”

“It’s just to provide additional information to help schools be able to use the guidance that we put forward.”

Trump on Wednesday slammed the guidelines CDC has put out over the past several weeks, saying the agency was “asking schools to do very impractical things.”

Pence says CDC changing school reopening guidelines after Trump called them 'tough and expensive'

Trump changes CDC rules on opening schoolsThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is revising its guidance on reopening schools after President Donald Trump tweeted his disagreement with them, Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday.

"The president said today we just don’t want the guidance to be too tough," Pence said at a news conference at the U.S. Department of Education. "That's the reason why, next week, CDC is going to be issuing a new set of tools, five different documents that will be giving even more clarity on the guidance going forward."

Trump tweeted Wednesday that he disagrees with the CDC's "very tough & expensive guidelines for opening schools" as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

Supreme Court Undercuts Access To Birth Control Under Obamacare

SCOTUS

The U.S. Supreme Court has made it more difficult for women to get access to birth control as part of their health plans if their employer has religious or moral objections to contraceptives.

The opinion upheld a Trump administration rule that significantly cut back on the Affordable Care Act requirement that insurers provide free birth control coverage as part of almost all health care plans.

"We hold that the [Trump administration] had the authority to provide exemptions from the regulatory contraceptive requirements for employers with religious and conscientious objections," Justice Clarence Thomas wrote for the majority.

He was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts, and Justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh.

TVNL Comment: Once again, men deciding the fate of women.  Back to the future.
