You're a little late to the game with this bullshit, Doc...

The head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced plans to overhaul the agency Wednesday — while admitting to major “mistakes” in handling the pandemic. “For 75 years, CDC and public health have been preparing for COVID-19, and in our big moment, our performance did not reliably meet expectations,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said in a statement. “I want us all to do better and it starts with CDC leading the way,” she said of her agency’s more than 11,000 staff.
In a separate interview, Walensky said of the pandemic response, “It’s not lost on me that we fell short in many ways.” “We had some pretty public mistakes, and so much of this effort was to hold up the mirror … to understand where and how we could do better.”

“Prior to this pandemic, our infrastructure within the agency and around the country was too frail to tackle what we confronted with COVID-19,” she said. “To be frank, we are responsible for some pretty dramatic, pretty public mistakes — from testing, to data, to communications,” she reportedly admitted.
The planned “reset” will revamp everything from the CDC’s operations to its culture, moving away from focusing on academic studies to instead prioritize responding to emerging emergencies.

Maybe, some where down the line, they'll learn that it's their job to analyze, predict, and consult on threats to the population. It is NOT their job to dictate public policy and mandates, and never should be. 
In other words, shut the fuck up 'till we ask you to talk, 
and then shut the fuck up again.
