Data Disaster: A Call for an Investigation Into the CDC’s Conduct During COVID-19

What You Should Know

  • We believe that a federal investigation would reveal that the CDC irreparably compromised data quality during a time of public crisis through its apparent failure to follow established laws for changing the recording of COVID-19 mortality metrics.


  • The CDC’s actions come with great costs to society. Had COVID-19 data not been manipulated, our state of emergency conditions and responses would have likely been vastly different, with far fewer negative consequences to the American public. 

  • It is not acceptable that the agency that is entrusted with protecting the health of our country set the stage for widespread national devastation — physical, psychological and economic. 
  • Simple steps we can take so that incidents of this magnitude never happen again.
