The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was accused on Monday of withholding vital swathes of its data on COVID-19. The CDC said it was to prevent misinterpretation of the information, and to avoid publishing partial or unverified data. Critics urged the CDC to publish the data and allow scientists to analyze and draw their own conclusions. ‘Tell the truth, present the data,’ said Dr Paul Offit, a vaccine expert and adviser to the Food and Drug Administration. The CDC was also criticized for dragging its heels on publishing information on the proportion of children hospitalized for COVID who have other medical conditions. Kristen Nordlund, a spokeswoman for the CDC, said the agency has been slow to release the different streams of data ‘because basically, at the end of the day, it’s not yet ready for prime time.’ She also said that they were reluctant to publish the data because it represents only 10 percent of the population of the United States – the same sample size the CDC has used to track influenza for years.
