The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday issued new guidance for coronavirus testing, days after a quiet change sparked protests from the scientific and medical communities.
In a statement, Director Robert Redfield said those who come into contact with confirmed or probable COVID-19 patients could be tested themselves, even if they do not show symptoms of the virus.
“Testing is meant to drive actions and achieve specific public health objectives. Everyone who needs a COVID-19 test, can get a test. Everyone who wants a test does not necessarily need a test; the key is to engage the needed public health community in the decision with the appropriate follow-up action,” Redfield said.
The CDC revised its testing guidance earlier this week, limiting tests to those who show symptoms. That change prompted backlash among public health experts who pointed to the role asymptomatic people play in spreading the virus, and concern that the revision had been dictated by political appointees outside of CDC.
Redfield said the guidelines issued on Monday had been coordinated with the White House coronavirus task force. The new guidance comes as the number of coronavirus tests across the United States has fallen in recent weeks.
But even his Thursday statement falls short of previous guidance, in which the CDC recommended contacts of those infected with the virus be tested specifically because of the threat of asymptomatic or presymptomatic transmission.
After reaching a peak of nearly a million new tests a month ago, the number of tests conducted on a daily basis has declined to fewer than 700,000 over the last four days, according to data maintained by the COVID Tracking Project, an independent group of researchers.

从积极的角度看:这次疫情之下彻底暴露了官僚机构CDC,以前都是温水煮青蛙。 咱们外人现在都知道CDC了,行业内部肯定知道不止是CDC,天知道多少尸位素餐的人和政府机构。

以前还觉得CDC是专业部门,现在看完全是官僚部门,不唯科学,只唯上!

EPA毁的很彻底啊,本来只占年支出预算0.2%,还要被他进一步削减掉31%;
另外EPA主席先被换成代表油公司利益的Pruitt,又换成代表煤炭行业的Wheeler,撤回了一系列清洁水源,汞,石棉,尾气的保护法案了

早都defund过了
1,疫情初期没能履行监控全球疫情的职责(funding被砍), In 2018, the CDC stopped epidemic prevention activities in 39 out of 49 countries, including China, after the Trump administration refused to reallocate money to a program that began as part of the government''s response to the Ebola outbreak in 2014. At that time, Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the CDC from 2009 to 2017, said the move "would significantly increase the chance an epidemic will spread without our knowledge and endanger lives in our country and around the world."
2,试剂盒出错,实验室感染,错过了最重要的抗疫窗口 https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/cdc-lab-contamination-delayed-coronavirus-testing-67438
3,上周还发生了根据白宫要求偷偷删数据的事情(被大规模批评后又恢复了) https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/507971-trump-administration-seeking-to-block-funding-for-cdc-contact-tracing
4,现在又为教育部部长和副部长的“学校必须重开”背书 https://www.chicagotribune.com/coronavirus/ct-cps-new-cdc-isbe-guidance-schools-20200724-raohulhdzjcr3mafdnrdtu54k4-story.html
5,建议,又撤回无症状者不测试

有操守的专业人士不是被炒了,就是自己辞职了,现在的director因为是忠粉,所以还好好呆在位置上

FDA 也开始失去应有的操守,唯川普之命了。血浆疗法的35%治愈率根本就是没有数据支持,完全扯蛋。FDA commissioner 周日刚为川普站完台,迫于同行压力,周一就澄清了。

至少,公共形象还没有毁掉,换个administration救回来还是有希望。CDC在几代美国人心中都毁了,没有任何credibility了
