In a recent New York Times article, CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund admitted that the agency "has been slow" to release data collected on COVID-19 — information that would have helped health officials throughout the country make better decisions in response to the pandemic. In other words, information that could have saved lives. And why would the CDC withhold such critical information? For our own good, of course. Because, you know, the people just can't handle the truth.
"[B]asically, at the end of the day, [the information] is not yet ready for prime time," Nordlund said.
"Another reason is fear that the information might be misinterpreted,” the NYT article said Nordland admitted.
