CDC/CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/TRUMP ADMIN: “Federal health officials have identified several controversial [coronavirus] pandemic recommendations released during the Donald Trump administration that they say were ‘not primarily authored’ by staff and don’t reflect the best scientific evidence, based on a review ordered by its new director…

One, released in July, delivered a strong argument for school reopenings and downplayed health risks. A second set of guidelines about the country’s reopening was released in April by the White House and was far less detailed than what had been drafted by the CDC and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. A third guidance issued in August discouraged the testing of people without covid-19 symptoms even when they had contact with infected individuals.”
