Trump Admin Flip-Flops On COVID-19 Data Reporting Policy

Gizmodo reports hospitals will once again be required to report data to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The move comes only a month after the new policy was implemented.

Public health experts and others criticized the government loudly about the switch.
