The Centers for Disease Control has stopped reporting the number of people tested for the coronavirus.
They had started doing so in January, but pulled the plug as states began testing and reporting their own figures.
Instead of risking the release of inaccurate information, they are pulling back on releasing totals.
When the outbreak started, the CDC was the only lab in the U.S. that was able to test for the coronavirus, but over the weekend, the FDA allowed other labs to do “high complexity” testing.
Lawmakers say they deserve to know how many people have been tested.
Approximately 90,000 people worldwide are infected at this time.
