Dr. Atlas Brings Much Needed Sanity to the WH Coronavirus Task Force
These quotes are from NYT hit piece on the great Dr. Atlas, trying to bring some rational thought into the wayward WH Task Force:
“When you isolate everyone, including all the healthy people, you’re prolonging the problem because you’re preventing population immunity,” Dr. Atlas said in a Fox News radio interview in July. “Low-risk groups getting the infection is not a problem. In fact, it’s a positive.”
In a Fox News interview in June, he lamented that “misinformation has spread” about herd immunity, arguing: “The reality is that when a population has enough people who have had the infection, and since these people don’t have a problem with the infection, that’s not a problem. That’s not a bad thing.”
…In a June interview with the Hoover Institution, he called it “literally irrational” to close schools. “All over the world, Switzerland, Iceland, Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Asian countries, there is a minimal, if any, risk of children transmitting the disease, even to their parents,” he said.
When I have some more time, I will address the irrationality of the current conventional wisdom of the mainstream media and their attacks on Dr. Atlas.
