Telemedicine companies say they’re used to meeting strict data security requirements, and deregulation will make it easier for them to reach patients.

The Justice Department is investigating the spread of an SMS-based disinformation campaign claiming that President Trump would implement a national quarantine as well as a possible attack meant to knock out computer networks at the Department of Health and Human Services.
