(Reuters) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention plans to reorganize its structure to prioritize public health needs and put less emphasis on publication of scientific papers about rare diseases, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday. The steps follow an external review that CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky had ordered in April, against the backdrop of criticism over its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. CDC did not immediately respond to Reuters request for comment. (Reporting by Leroy Leo in Bengaluru; Editing by Arun Koyyur)
