Trump administration asks hospitals to bypass the CDC with updates on COVID-19: New York TimesThe administration of President Donald Trump has requested that hospitals bypass the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and send COVID-19 patient information to a central database in Washington, , The department, and not the CDC, the main public health agency in the U.S., will handle daily reports on patients, available hospital beds, ventilators and other information needed to track the pandemic. The news has dismayed public health experts as the data will not be open to the public, unlike CDC data, and will not be available to researchers who currently rely on CDC data to make decisions and projections. The news surprised the CDC, the Times reported, citing two anonymous officials. "I find it very concerning," said Richard Besser, CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and a former CDC director, in an MSNBC interview. "It's another example of the CDC being sidelined."

Excluding non-recurring items, adjusted earnings per share rose to $7.12 from $3.60, beating the FactSet consensus of $5.28. Total revenue grew 2.5% to $62.14 billion, but was below the FactSet consensus of $63.48 billion. Premiums revenue rose 4.7% to $49.39 billion to miss the FactSet consensus of $50.05 billion; products revenue fell 1.3% to $8.25 billion, but topped expectations of $8.08 billion; and services revenue dropped 7.6% to $4.16 billion, missing expectations of $4.99 billion. The company affirmed its 2020 adjusted EPS guidance range of $16.25 to $16.55. "As the [COVID-19] pandemic advanced, access to and demand for care was most constrained from mid-March through April, began to recover in May and approached more typical levels by the end of the second quarter," the company said in a statement. The stock has climbed 9.5% over the past three months through Tuesday, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has rallied 11.2%.
