Posted on 07/15/2020 1:33:37 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Hospitals from across the country will no longer send CCP virus or COVID-19 related data to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and are instead required to send it to a central database in Washington beginning July 15, according to an HHS statement released Friday.
HHS said Vice President Mike Pence sent a letter to hospital administrators across the country asking them to send daily pandemic data on testing, capacity, utilization, and patient flow to the federal government.
The objective is to allow states and hospitals either to leverage existing data reporting capabilities or, where those capabilities are insufficient, to provide guidance in how to build upon existing capabilities, said the HHS in a statement.
The federal administration said it needs daily information to plan, allocate, and for allocating resources during the public health emergency.
This data will be used to inform decisions at the federal level, such as allocation of supplies, treatments, and other resources, said the HHS.
The federal administration said the central database will let it move away from the manual entry process towards an automated one and reduce its data collection burdens.
We will no longer be sending out one-time requests for data to aid in the distribution of Remdesivir or any other treatments or supplies. This daily reporting is the only mechanism used for the distribution calculations, and the [data] is needed daily to ensure accurate calculations, said the HHS.
The federal government said since the state governments are already collecting data from the hospitals, they may like to continue doing that.
Therefore, hospitals may be relieved from reporting directly to the Federal Government if they receive a written release from the State stating that the State will collect the data from the hospitals and take over Federal reporting responsibilities, said the HHS.

The fake Florida numbers on the testing showing 100 percent
positivity likely had a decisive role in this change.
Libs will do anything to cause a total economic shutdown.
Just how far will the left push us? Now we're starting to see.
My 58-year-old sister, who had open heart surgery two months ago, and cancer treatment over the last few weeks, tested positive for Covid. She said that shes had bodyaches, fever, a little bit of diarrhea, and for the most part is fine. She claims that her immunity is tough because shes never taken a flu shot and eats healthy. Shes calling it a glorified flu and is thankful that her symptoms were not more severe. She lives in Minneapolis and her liberal friends Our awestruck and cant believe that she is not dead. She was out working on her garden the other day.
HHS should have been receiving hospital information in the first place.
Unfortunately, the numbers from the hospitals will be questionable given that it appears almost every bed and death imaginable will be counted as Covid incident. Why? Hospital revenues are down since elective surgery has been postponed. Hospitals are making up the revenue shortfall by billing the Feds for Covid treatment.
Remember the army Corps of engineers built a 2,000 bed facility in the Javitts Convention Center in NY City... it was never used. The 1,000 bed NAVY hospital ship Mercy was sent to NY City, it was not used either. All the Covid patients were bedded down in hospitals. NY City Mayor DeBlasio scent infested patients to nursing homes instead of to Javitts and the hospital ship. Thousands of old people caught the virus and died.
Two words describe this entire flu thingy: Fuster Cluck.
Too bad The Stupid Party doesnt chronically these events in a formal document and make it known nationwide to the public.
Yup. It is unfortunate that government workers exist in silos and have no clue as to the realities occurring in the real world. Trump was mislead by a slew of never-Trumpers and the deep state. Furthermore, it doesnt help that dipshit Fauci is still chasing cameras and continues to perpetuate his BS.
‘Too bad The Stupid Party doesnt chronically these events in a formal document and make it known nationwide to the public.’
well, that’s what Stupid Parties do; or in this case, don’t do...
Oh noes! Your sister is anti-vax??! That’s apparently worse than ISIS, according to some here.
I am glad your sister is doing well. All vaccines lower base level immunity, which is probably why some people get so sick after taking a flu shot.
Liberals want people dead, and don’t want anyone to receive effective treatment other than a vaccine.
The Center for Disease Perpetuation is not in Washington??? Where is it?
After what WOFL-TV in Orlando did exposing that massive fraud on COVID-19 infection numbers, no wonder the Trump Administration no longer trusts the CDC.
I heard Rush today talk about 300 hospitals and or labs In FLA had 100% COVID 19 Positive testing results. Desantis, the Gov should order a criminal investigation of these hospitals and labs.
Its way past time for hospital and labs to quit cooking the books.
Well, bless your sister’s heart and good health.
Probably going on in Texas too.
That is a keeper and priceless........LOL
Last week it was so warm out here, I was wearing a wife beater shirt like the guy in the toon, and shorts.
Today it is 75 outside and inside!
The CDC is loaded with rogue employees intent upon taking down the Trump Administration by taking down America.
This is beyond a No Confidence vote into the territory of Lets shut down the CDC.
