“I consider [CDC guidance] political propaganda,” Cuomo said Wednesday. “I would caution private companies against following the CDC guidance.”
“It is inherently self-contradictory. It is the exact opposite of what the CDC has been saying,” Cuomo said. “So either the CDC is … admitting error in their first position or this is just political dictation.”
“Shame on the people at the CDC.” NY Gov. Cuomo says the state won’t follow new federal guidance on coronavirus testing after the CDC revised its recommendations. https://t.co/gFlB3rS8yv— CNBC (@CNBC) August 27, 2020
