The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are struggling with a shortage of staff members due to low morale and political pressure, according to a report from Daily Mail.
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are both suffering staff shortages, according to Dr. Marty Makary, a top public-health expert at Johns Hopkins University, writes at Common Sense, the Substack run by former New York Times columnist, Bari Weiss,” the outlet reported.
Health experts were concerned about the direction that the federal agencies are taking.
“Decisions like the closure of schools and then requiring face masks once they reopened led to many questioning leadership. Lately, the authorization of COVID-19 vaccines for children four years old of younger has confused some in America’s top medical agencies,” the news outlet added.
