Diane talks with Mary McCord, Legal Director at the Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection and Visiting Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center.
From data collection to insurance coverage, our fragmented health care system has complicated the country’s ability to track the spread of Covid-19.
And public health officials warn the Trump administration’s recent rule change for how hospitals report information might make it worse. Data that used to go to the Centers for Disease Control about things like the availability of ICU beds and if staff have sufficient PPE will now be sent to the Department of Health and Human Services. It’s a move some fear will politicize essential information about the combating the virus.
Diane talks to Sarah Kliff, investigative reporter for The New York Times, about this change and why it may be just one more obstacle for U.S. health care and public health systems that are woefully unprepared to fight this pandemic.
