The resources wasted and misinformation spread by the CDC throughout the COVID-19 pandemic make it difficult to imagine how the agency could ever be fixed.

s the COVID-19 pandemic seems in many ways to be winding down, journalists and academics are reflecting on the performance of our official institutions, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in handling this global health disaster.

The New York Times Magazine recently published an article titled “Can the C.D.C. Be Fixed?” by Times staff writer and editorial board member Jeneen Interlandi. As her analysis shows, the actions of the nation’s health protection agency throughout its COVID-19 response does not bode well for its ability to steward the nation through future catastrophes, or even more ordinary public health issues.

After investigating the agency, Interlandi reports that, “The C.D.C. maintains more than 100 separate disease-specific computer systems (a byproduct of the agency’s funding silos), and many of those can’t interface with one another.” As a result, she observes, “Crucial data is often shepherded from health care facilities to health departments through a tortured process that can involve handwritten notes, manual spreadsheets, fax machines and snail mail.”

Bill Hanage, public health scientist at Harvard University, is quoted as saying that the CDC has “no rational plan behind it,” and its “random patchwork collaborations were initiated and transformed and now have an outsize impact on our understanding of public health.”

“It’s not uncommon for basic information like race, ethnicity, age or address to be missing from clinical reports,” Interlandi writes. “It’s also not uncommon for those reports to languish at the state or local level without ever making their way to federal officials. Even the most serious diseases, which are supposed to be logged within 24 hours of detection and reported to the C.D.C. in a timely way, are not necessarily sent up that chain in any systematic manner.”

According to the Times, the agency was unable to keep reliable track of testing or case rates across the country throughout the pandemic. It also consistently failed to update hospital data such as ventilator supply and bed availability. “And when multiple vaccines were finally deployed, the agency was not able to monitor supplies or accurately keep tabs on waste,” Interlandi notes.

Many negative consequences have resulted from the CDC’s disastrous data management practices. One such consequence has been the release of misinformation.

According to a New York Times article published in March of 2020, for example, CDC officials “provided conflicting accounts of when a significant increase in tests would be available.”

Even worse, in May of 2020, the agency was revealed by The Atlantic to have been conflating multiple different and incomparable datasets. Alexis C. Madrigal and Robinson Meyer write, “We’ve learned that the CDC is making, at best, a debilitating mistake: combining test results that diagnose current coronavirus infections with test results that measure whether someone has ever had the virus. The upshot is that the government’s disease-fighting agency is overstating the country’s ability to test people who are sick with COVID-19.”

The CDC confirmed to The Atlantic that it had been “mixing the results of viral and antibody tests, even though the two tests reveal different information and are used for different reasons.” As Madrigal and Meyer note, “This is not merely a technical error. States have set quantitative guidelines for reopening their economies based on these flawed data points.”

Ashish Jha, Harvard University Professor of Global Health and director of the Harvard Global Health Institute, said about the CDC’s conflation of these two datasets, “You’ve got to be kidding me.”

These are just a few of countless deadly errors made by the CDC throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The agency also developed their own test that was redundant with the one already approved by the World Health Organization, sent out flawed test kits which forced many states to limit test access, and regulated testing based on irrationally narrow criteria. All at the expense of precious time and resources during crucial stages of the crisis.

The dangerous sloppiness, inefficiency, and wastefulness of the CDC, which has these traits in common with other comparable agencies such as the FDA, are no fluke. They are predictable outcomes of virtually all publicly-funded bureaucracies, because such institutions lack any robust mechanism of accountability.

Accountable institutions, such as the for-profit companies of the private sector, cannot afford to leave their faulty processes unaltered because they will risk losing their supporters and being outcompeted into non-existence. When a policy isn’t working or an employee is underperforming, the price-signals of profits and losses give an unmistakable indication that something needs to be corrected.

By contrast, the bureaucrats of organizations like the CDC are disincentivized from correcting their mistakes. Without the profit motive as an objective metric of success or failure, they profit not from the consequences of their actions being beneficial to others, but rather from obfuscating responsibility by following protocol.

The 20th century economist Ludwig Von Mises understood this fundamental truth about the nature of bureaucracy. As he wrote in his 1944 book Bureaucracy, “No reform can remove the bureaucratic features of the government’s bureaus. It is useless to blame them for their slowness and slackness. It is vain to lament over the fact that the assiduity, carefulness, and painstaking work of the average bureau clerk are, as a rule, below those of the average worker in private business.”

As Mises explains, “In the absence of an unquestionable yardstick of success and failure it is almost impossible for the vast majority of men to find that incentive to utmost exertion that the money calculus of profit-seeking business easily provides.”

So, Jeneen Interlandi and the New York Times Magazine are right to notice that the CDC may simply be unfixable.

      Sure, this is about fixing it, it has nothing to do with setting up the conversation for a more centralized national health database, integrating the private & public sector info for the populous and the research facilities. Way to buy into it, smh.

    2. The article left out to REAL reason the CDC is broken and has been for MANY years. The leaders of the CDC are ALWAYS past big Pharma CEO’s or executives of large Pharma companies and they are there for a reason and it is NOT for our benefit. This has been known for years. I would imagine this was written by a person who knows this but is scared to print it.

    4. If ignorance is truly
      bliss,then the folks
      over at the CDC
      should be very happy.

    5. Hey folks – If you have not figured this out yet let me help

      – This is a man made virus weapon
      – This was made to do what its doing
      – The gene therapy jabs are NOT vaccines
      These jabs will alter your DNA and not in a good way
      – These jabs have not been approved – only emergency approval
      – If you have been “vaccinated” why the need for a mak
      – NOBODY knows the long term health implication
      – There has been a lot of suppress negative reaction from the jab. A 15 year old heathy boy died of a HEART attack in my little home town.
      – The safest and most effective drug is the third most important drug deigned by man 1 aspirin, 2 penicillin – Do you know the third?
      Its I v er mec tin.
      – This drug is cheap easily available and has been distributed to third world’s countries with amazing success. The Austrian PM has an amazing video out – but the elite might have pulled it down about (I ver mec tin)

      WAKE P FOLKS THIS IS AN EVIL PLOT
      You have to ask when will it end
      You have to ask what will the world do to CHINA/

      Actually, the CDC is financed by the private sector, and this obvious conflict of interest has caused insurmountable problems in all levels of government. They are all funded by the private sector, and they are not prohibitted from investing in the private sector or even simultaneously working for the private sector. The profit motive was the sole reason for the scamdemic, with government bureacracies and bureacrats investing in “the cure” , “the vaccines”, and “the tests.”

      In addition to the profit motive from big pharma stcock market manipulation, there was also a most dubious and diabolical
      profit motive for the government to engage in mass murder of high cost insurance people on Medicare and Medicaid, the majority of their victims were in nursing homes or sent to nursing homes after being diagnosed with the virus that does not exist, covid-19. There are of course corona viruses as well as other respiratory diseases and flus that people have gotten sick and even died from, but most of the deaths were the result of medical error aka mal-practice caused by placing people on ventilators as well as harmful treatments, and being denied effective treatments all for the purpose of the profit motive.

      So the government promises Medicare and Medicaide, but if you use it, they may kill you for it because they can’t afford to pay the bills because they bailed out the incompetent billionaires and incompetent Welfare for Wall Street firms and wellfare for investors for the Umpteenth time, and because they are financing the InfraGard Welfare State, handing big league government contracts over to mentally incompetent perverted freaks and thieves to violate our constitutional rights, and to make sure that we do not hate anyone! What is not to hate about all of this?!

      It’s time for a national movement to demand the arrest every member of this administration. We can’t allow this regime to continue running this country into the ground.

      What’s it going to take? Is there any legitimate law enforcement or military remaining?

      The CDC is a proven Genocidal Cult. Don’t believe anything they say..

      Listen to the entire video The Planned Take down of America, and how this will happen.

      Go to the 27 Min MARK of this video for the numbers.

      Quote – Half of the 180 Million Americans will be dead from taking the Vaccines within the next few years.

      The next scam is the Corona DELTA Variant and the statistics of who will get this.

      Study Results of over 7000 cases of those who got the Delta Variant Virus.

      **Those who did not take the Vax – your chances are less than 1% to getting the Delta Variant, yet those who took the Vaccine, 40% will get the Delta Variant. So what does that tell you?

      The Pandemic is being perpetuated by taking the Vaccine. The Vaccine is spreading the Pandemic.

      Yet the Government and Lying scum MSM media claim taking the vaccine protects you from the Delta Variant.

      Mac – Please post more articles from Mike Adams, the Health Ranger. He is nailing these Bassturds bigtime.

    9. Andrea.Iravani. says:

      It was InfraGards idea to censor dissent against the scamdemic and vaccines.

      The constitution exists to place limits on the government and those in power, and to protect the rights of the sovereign – the individual – We the People. Nowhere in the constitution does it say that only the government is prohibitted from violating the constitutional rights of people. If everyone respected everyone elses constitutional rights, there would be no murder, rape, theft, vandalism, or Peeping Toms. Obviously, an employer has a reasonable claim to expect certain protocols as far as free speech is concerned while the employee is at work, however, social media now has employers expecting employees to behave as employees when they are not working, and this is quite unreasonable, in my opinion. Employers do not own employees, but many are acting as though they do with social media monitoring. It is unreasonable to expect employees to act like corporate robots 24/7. I have read many accounts of employees being fired over social media posts strictly because the employees political views differed from their employers. The right and the left have both fired employees over social media posts that they objected to but were well within the rights of the employee to post and had nothing to do with their job or employer in the vast majority of circumstances. Social media has rung in the wave of fascism that now has employers believing that they are entitled to monitor every aspect of employees lives while they are not at work. This is not new. Henry Ford hired spies to check bars for employees after hours because he strongly opposed alcoholic consumption. Social media just makes it easier for employers and educators to monitor employees and students after work or school hours activity. Schools have been equally guilty of this fascistic behavior of monitoring students social media accounts and even expelling students for social media posts that they disagreed with.

      Citizens Against the Anti-American Organized Crime Ring of InfraGard Charter

      InfraGard is a terrorist network and organized crime ring that defies the American way of life and the U.S. constitution. It is a public private partnership surveillance cult filled with murderers, thieves, perverts, hackers, vandals, and stalkers and has totally destroyed national security, personal security, and also corporate security. It is filled with parasites that exist strictly for the purpose of feeding off of others as predators do. InfraGard uses illegal actions that have bosses spying on employees, co-workers spying on co-workers, neighbors spying on neighbors, and corporate espionage agents spying on competitors and stealing intellectual property. It is filled with over 180,000 coporations and the 17 intelligence agencies, local governments, police, and academia. They know where you live, how much money you make, what you own, where you bank, who you communicate with. They know everything about you, and they want to know what to steal from whom and who to kill that may be a threat to their parasitic and predatory lifestyles. They have cheated their way through life because they are totally mentally incompetent. 

      Not only are they completely mentally incompetent, but they are also completely fascist and demand total omerta ( loyalty ) and secrecy.

      InfraGard members also engage in organized community stalking which involves gas-lighting, and letting you know that they are spying on you but deny it when confronted since it is illegal. They do this by repeating or re-enacting things that they would only know if they were spying on you, ( referred to as street theater among targeted victims ) when there are just too many coincidences to overlook, you know that InfraTards have targeted you. They do black bag job break-ins, vandalism, and crooking, all of which is also totally illegal.

      They are low life, low IQ losers and complete cowards that are so afraid that they need an entire gang of terrorists that they affiliate with for their survival, and even though they have an entire gang of terrorists, they are still too cowardly to admit to what they are doing because they know how sick, disgusting, and evil their behavior is and they do not want to admit that they are as sick, evil, and mentally incompetent as they actually are. They know that people would despise them for it if they came right out and said it in plain English, and they also know that it is all totally illegal, as if laws stop crime from taking place though! We would not have any crime if laws prevented crime. 

      Evidently, InfraGard members only associate with other InfraGard members. They hate us for our freedoms – our constitutional rights.  I would not want to associate with people that are involved in InfraGard anyways because their lifestyles are an afront to all that I believe in, so I certaily do not feel any sense of loss over being shunned by InfraGard members. That is their cult like behavior. Anyone not part of the cult is a threat to the cult and is the enemy. These cult like tactics are extremely infamous and are usually associated with fringe element religious extremist groups that have completely wrecked entire families after getting ahold of one family member to become a part of their cult. They use Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals cult tactics on their targeted victims. Cults rely on brainwashing cult members. Cults tell cult members that if their family members loved them that they would convert and become part of their cult. They force cult members to abandon their own families and relationships. They want total control over cult members lives, and any outsider is a threat to the cult because it shatters the illusion of the brain washing that the cult members have been subjected to. 

      If you are a member of the InfraGard cult, just walk away from the surveillance organized crime ring terrorist cult of InfraGard. If you are not a cult member, do not become one. They are evil predators and terrorists.

      InfraGard members have perpetrated a crime spree on me, my life, members of my family, and my property of the most heinous, monstrous, sadistic, barbaric nature. They act as though they are devil worshippers. They must be posessed by the devil. I really cannot imagine what else would cause people to behave the way that they have other than that they are demonically posessed. They are sick as hell. Much worse than Joseph Mengela and Adolph Hitler were and on a much larger scale. 9/11, the seven false flag wars that the 9/11 inside job resulted in, and the scamdemic are prime evidence of their barbaric monstrosity. They have turned America into a lawless banana republic resembling Planet of the Apes and they have the mentalities of monkey brained Monster Apes.

    10. Last fall the CDC claimed there were no flu deaths! A miracle. They said all the deaths were Covid. They said there were no pneumonia deaths last fall. All Covid. My point? This fall the CDC will again claim all flu and pneumonia deaths are Covid or Delta variant. Why? To lock us down again. To finish the destruction of the economy and society. Prepare as best you can. Peace and good health be upon you all.

      Prior to the scamdemic, the Tuskegee Experiment had been referred toas The Bad Blood Experiment, now the media refers to it as the Tuskegee Experiment, and I think that they do this because they want to remove the implication of faked test results obtained from DNA, in that case blood, or in covid-19 nasal swabs.

      The point being that the self proclaimed eperts have over 100 years of history of Nazi Eugenics, junk science, and genocide, and the Universities have been the leaders in this, right along with their industrialist sponsors, including forced sterilizations starting in the early 1900’s, radiation experiments on people including pregnant women and newborns, MKULTRA mind control experiments, and other sick sadistic psychological experiments on people and animals. They are monsters, not scientists. They are monkey brained monster apes. Human beings do not do things like that to other human beings. 

      The media has also completely removed white people in the history of The Bad Blood Experiment, who were also victims of the Bad Blood Experiment, because the monkey- brained, monster ape, junk-scientists hypothesized that syphilis affected blacks physically and whites mentally which just goes to show you how fucking stupid and evil the University “Expert” 
      “Scienists”  are! They told all of these victims that they had intentionally infected with syphilus that they had bad blood and let it progress to the late stages of the disease which can result in blindness and insanity, as well as other physically debilitating  conditions including servere arthritus and heart conditions, and they did it all for their “love of science and humanity!” 

      They are retarded! I am not exagerating! 

      They are mad scientists, like Dr. Frankenstein!
