Did The CDC Bug YOUR Phone?


Does anyone truly trust the CDC anymore?

According to the latest reports, the CDC acquired phone records to conduct a surveillance program gauging Americans’ compliance with Covid-19 lockdowns.

As if the agency couldn’t get any more Orwellian. …

Consequently, roughly 25% of Americans don’t trust the CDC anymore—can anyone blame them? I suspect that these are propped-up numbers, the actual number of Americans who distrust the CDC is likely far higher.

Needless to say, the reactions online to the CDC’s surveillance program were overwhelmingly negative:

The Epoch Times broke the story:

The CDC paid one firm $420,000 and another $208,000. That bought access to location data from at least 55 million cellphone users.

The CDC said it would be using the tracking data to “assess home-by-hour behaviors (i.e. curfew analysis) by exploring the percentage of mobile devices at home during specific period of time.”

The data could also be integrated with other information “to provide a comprehensive picture of movement/travel of persons during the COVID-19 pandemic to better understand mandatory stay-at-home orders, business closure, school re-openings, and other non-pharmaceutical interventions in states and cities.”


In a related report, CBS News revealed:

Of those surveyed, 37% said they have a “great deal” of trust in the CDC’s health recommendations, and an additional 37% “somewhat” trust the agency.

16% have “not very much” trust in the CDC’s recommendations, and 10% trust them “not at all.”
