CDC - We've been muzzled.
I was reading an article today speculating that Dr. Redfield was about to be fired by Trump. Well, six staff members spoke anonymously (for fear of reprisals) about what is going on within the agency.
"We've been muzzled," said a current CDC official. "What's tough is that if we would have acted earlier on what we knew and recommended, we would have saved lives and money."
It may have started when Nancy Messonier warned the public -- at a time when President Donald Trump was out of the country and downplaying the threat -- that "the disruption to everyday life might be severe."
It appears to have gone downhill from there. Here's the full article.
