Forgive us for being skeptical, but President Trump’s order for all medical centers to cease reporting their COVID-19 patient data to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sounds fishy.

Hospitals now are to direct their COVID-19 data to a third party entity, TeleTracking, where, we fear, it will be cataloged under “Do Not Disturb.”
