Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has continually released to the public a running total of COVID-19 ‘cases,’ hospitalizations, and deaths, it turns out the data was only a fraction of what the agency collected.
“The New York Times published a report explaining that the CDC has quietly collected much more detailed data about COVID infections based on age, race and vaccination status,” Natural News noted.
This information, had it been publicly released, would have gone a long way towards coming up with a solid plan to end the plandemic. Instead, the CDC deliberately withheld and suppressed it over fears that it might be “misinterpreted” and create more “vaccine hesitancy.”
In other words, the CDC believes that the American public, and really the world, is too stupid to understand simple data points and instead has to be force-fed lies in order to get them to roll up their sleeves.
“The CDC’s response when questioned about their withholding of COVID data and lack of transparency is essentially ‘we don’t trust you to be able to understand the truth,’” tweeted Dr. Nicole Saphier. “The condescension is palpable. The wheels are finally coming off.”

From Web MD:
The CDC published information about the effectiveness of boosters for people under 65 two weeks ago but didn’t provide data about people 18-49 years old, the age group least likely to benefit from boosters because they’re already well protected by the first two shots, The Times said.
The CDC recently created a dashboard of how much COVID bacteria has been discovered in wastewater, though state and local agencies had been sending the CDC their own wastewater data since the start of the pandemic, The Times said. The appearance of COVID in wastewater can help health authorities predict outbreaks, scientists have said.
Some outside health experts were stunned to find out the CDC held back COVID information.
“We have been begging for that sort of granularity of data for two years,” Jessica Malaty Rivera, an epidemiologist and part of the team that ran Covid Tracking Project, told The Times. A more detailed picture would have improved public trust, she said.
The Times said the withheld data could have helped local and state health authorities respond during different stages of the pandemic and better protect vulnerable populations. The lack of booster information about 18-49-year-old forced federal health agencies to rely on data collected in Israel on recommendations for booster shots, The Times said.
When asked to comment, CDC spokesperson Kristen Nordlund said the agency held back some information “because basically, at the end of the day, it’s not yet ready for prime time.”
The CDC prioritizes making sure information is accurate, she said, adding that the CDC fears the public might misinterpret some information.
Rivera rejected the idea that information should be withheld to avoid misinterpretation.
“We are at a much greater risk of misinterpreting the data with data vacuums, than sharing the data with proper science, communication and caveats,” she said.
