The Medicare distribution already exists and is currently used to transmit information to Medicare participants. This population coincides with those most vulnerable to the virus. If the CDC were to use it to distribute/push curated information it would reach this critical group. It could be done very quickly because all elements required to effect this channel already exist under the control of the federal government.
