Storyline


More than 1,000 former and current officials with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have signed an open letter expressing their concerns over the country's COVID-19 response, according to a Friday report from the Wall Street Journal.

The 1,044 signatories within the CDC's Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) expressed their dissatisfaction about "the ominous politicization and silencing of the nation's health protection agency during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic."

The report also said the letter pointed out that "the absence of national leadership on COVID-19 is unprecedented and dangerous." It also said that the epidemic in the U.S. has been exacerbating due to transmission chains spread out in the country, but the different states and territories were left to develop their own systems in diagnosing the highly contagious disease.

"Inconsistent contact tracing efforts are confined within each state's borders — while coronavirus infections sadly are not. Such chaos is what CDC customarily avoided by its long history of collaboration with state and local health authorities in developing national systems for disease surveillance and coordinated control," the letter said.

At the end, the letter stated that the devastation from COVID-19 continues with no end in sight as of yet.

"CDC should be at the forefront of a successful response to this global public health emergency. We urgently call upon the American people to demand and our nation's leaders to allow CDC to resume its indispensable role," said the letter.

One of the signatories, Charles Rabkin, also a medical epidemiologist at the National Cancer Institute, said the letter showed "an expression of solidarity among our community."

Apart from health professionals, co-founder of the U.S. COVID-19 Tracking Project Alexis Madrigal also slammed the U.S. response toward COVID-19 in an television interview with MSNBC on Friday. Madrigal, also a journalist with The Atlantic, said that the U.S. "never really got control" over COVID-19, which led to a surge in the death toll.

The U.S. remains the worst-hit country in the world, with the highest caseload and death toll. The total number of COVID-19 cases exceeded 8.1 million on Saturday, according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University.

The cumulative case count amounted to 8,101,940, including a death toll of 219,154 as of 20:24 Eastern Standard Time on Saturday, data from the CSSE showed.
