Prayer #150: For the New Centers for Disease Control Coronavirus Tracking System
The Centers for Disease Control's current system for tracking hospital data related to COVID-19 has about a week lag in reporting, but a new system is being constructed that will be much faster and more complete. Because of this, beginning back in July, hospitals were instructed to report their data to a central database operated by the Department of Health and Human Services in Washington, D.C. But now, according to Dr. Deborah Birx, White House Coronavirus Task Force coordinator, the CDC will be rolling out "a revolutionary new data system" soon, although no timeframe has yet been given.
Pray that this new Coronavirus tracking system would be operational soon. Pray that this new system would provide a much quicker ability to receive hospital information related to COVID. And pray that this would, in turn, help the CDC to give rapid COVID updates to state and local government, so that civic leaders can provide accurate information to citizens as the battle to defeat the virus continues.
Is. 40:29: "He gives power to the faint, and to Him who has no might He increases strength."
