Last week Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House Coronavirus Task Force response administrator, challenged the CDC Director in a heated conversation. Dr. Birx told Dr. Redfield, “There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust!”

Birx was right. The CDC numbers could not be trusted.
The CDC intentionally made it that way.
Colorado admitted this week to over-counting coronavirus deaths in the state and lowered their state totals by 272 deaths.
Colorado’s numbers were overstated by 31% (272 difference divided by 878).
The change came after Colorado’s Department of Public Health admitted that its COVID-19 death toll was counting those who tested positive for the coronavirus but had died of other causes, Fox 31 Denver reported late Friday.
