Cover up

The term cover up usually denotes a deliberate effort by one or more persons to hide a fact or truth from view or general public knowledge. It includes generally any concerted attempt to prevent people's discovering the truth about a serious mistake or crime, and it involves any action, strategy or other preventive means of concealing something scandalous from becoming public, to avoid investigation and exposure. Compare Hypocrites.

A cover up is also a physical covering. Sometimes in the case of a crime investigation the physical evidence is literally covered up with a cloth or other physical means of concealment. Professionals who normally deal with dangerous conditions put on protective gear to "cover up" for safety. Persons who are exposed naked by accident or misfortune are quickly covered up as soon as possible. Bodies of persons killed are covered up on site, until they can be transported to an appropriate medical facility for an autopsy.
