On the Need for Information Sharing to Combat the Coronavirus
Tuesday, March 17, 2020
As the coronavirus spreads, U.S. federal health and intelligence agencies are working hard to protect the public. It’s critical that their hard work not go to waste.
Federal health agencies must have access to all intelligence community information that could help combat this pandemic.
To help with that access, the intelligence community must guard against over-classifying information.
In situations like this, information is power.

Let’s show the world what America can do to stop the spread of this virus.
