The Republican Party is pushing the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to reveal the data behind it’s recent decision to escalate COVID protocols.
However, the CDC is refusing.
Per Fox News:
A group of House Republicans is pushing for more transparency for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the data behind its most recent mask guidance for vaccinated people and what metrics it will need to see to rescind the controversial recommendation.
“Unfortunately, the CDC has not been transparent with the data underlying this decision, sowing confusion and distrust,” said Rep. Mike Gallagher in a letter to the CDC. “So, we write to ask that you publicize this data and explain how it justifies a blanket and open-ended policy.”
“If your agency cannot even provide reliable predictions about current transmission, we question your ability to estimate the extent to which breakthrough infections are expected to drive the overall number of cases among the unvaccinated,” said Gallagher’s letter. “We worry this shifting mask guidance and lack of transparency signals the CDC does not have a plan to show the American people what benchmarks need to be achieved to bring their lives back to normal.”
