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.

Sorry to hear about you and your wife being separated.
The massive Florida mis-counting surely was not an accident.
Then again, Florida has a history of being deeply confused about counting, maybe there ARE hundreds of people in the public health system that think count refers to Dracula.
Libs OR the CCP! If I was in charge of CCP disinformation, Id have 1,000 hackers working on sowing confusion about Covid. A gold mine.
It won’t make any difference except for the time and funds spent on the federal government. Many private and public organizations are collecting the data directly from counties and hospitals and making the information public.
They are cooking the books in Florida, Texas and Arizona because they opened up quickly and all those states have republican governors.
Trust no one in the federal agencies. Baraq Hussein obama did a masterful job of infiltrating all of them with pro communist jihadists during his 8 years.
Trump is doing the right thing pulling the CDC out of the mix.
now close down anti american budget shitholes CDC and NIH
I have no sense that we have a surge at all...true...we have a few more patients but they are on the medical floor, very few needing ICU...and there is a backload of trying to get the confused/demented/frail elderly into nursing homes once they've had covid...nursing homes won't admit them and families are not taking them home....
again, out and about, I sense no panic, no surge.....lots of traffic on the roads and in the stores...
ORLANDO, Fla. - A person who died in a motorcycle accident was added to Floridas COVID-19 death count, according to a state health official.
Dr: "but the fact that the individual didnt die from COVID-19 died in the crash. But you could actually argue that it could have been the COVID-19 that caused him to crash. I dont know the conclusion of that one.
This is what we are up against...
Then we have to deal with:
1. False positives.
2. What "positive" actually means.
3. Non-China Virus deaths being listed as China Virus deaths.
4. Bad reporting from clinics/hospitals/etc (persons never tested being told they tested positive).
5. "Positive" numbers being kept on the books forever. Not all of these people could possibly still be sick.
For a moment I thought they were looking at their smartphones.
My 24 year old son in law had it and said it was the worst flu ever. My daughter is now feeling ill and on her way to urgent care. The Army quarantined my son in law for 2 more weeks.
Freddie Freeman of the Braves said he tested his temperture at 8 am and was normal. By 2 pm he had a fever of 104. He too said it was rough.
It is the real deal. The CCP can make some really bad stuff. But CCPovid-19 is the worst.
It no longer matters what the counts are. It no longer matters how many people are being tested, or being hospitalized or die.
There isn’t a damn thing anybody can do about it.
“...It no longer matters what the counts are. It no longer matters how many people are being tested, or being hospitalized or die.

Exactly. It’s been, what, 4 over months now?
Forcing folks to wear masks is like forcing a husband to wear a condom to the baby shower....the damage is done.
There’s no containing it now. It’s everywhere so herd immunity is the solution.....so it now boils down to: C O N T R O L.
They’re using it as a way to control every aspect of our lives.
If you visited Huntington, Pennsylvania, it would feel very different. Zero Deaths Im over a month in the surrounding county. And on July 11, I walked into a store and was the only one wearing a mask. They still had a barrier on the counter, but that was it.
