CDC Admits to Hiding Data for Political Reasons

CDC Admits to Hiding Data for Political Reasons

In a shocking interview with The New York Times, the openly admitted that “(the CDC) isn’t publishing large portions of the COVID data it collects” for fear that the public might “misrepresent the data.”

Per The Times:

The agency has been reluctant to make those figures public,” according to the Times, “because they might be misinterpreted as the vaccines being ineffective.”

The CDC eventually did decide to publish its data of hospitalizations and death from both unvaccinated and vaccinated Americans, with or without booster shots. But it did so in a manner that obscures younger individuals’ overall COVID risks, which is very low, instead attempting to force a comparison between vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals’ hospitalization. The exact data about COVID risks by specific age has not been released into an easily dissectible chart.

Jessica Malaty Rivera, an epidemiologist and science communications consultant at The Pandemic Tracking Collective, criticized the CDC:

“We have been begging for that sort of granularity of data for two years,” she told The New York Times, referring to omitted datasets.

This is not the first time that CDC data has been called into question. Earlier this month an “error” caused them to announce that it was “correcting” their COVID deaths numbers, and removing tens-of-thousands of deaths from their totals. Those included removing over 24% of all COVID deaths among children they had previously reported. Earlier this year, a study found that cloth masks, something the CDC has long claimed that would slow the spread of COVID-19, was proven to be practically “useless.”

, a pioneer in the development of mRNA and DNA vaccines, was unsparing in his criticism, calling out the CDC for their practices in an interview with The New American. Malone went so far as to claim that the CDC had spread misinformation and were harming the American people.
