Dr. Scott Atlas, the anti-Fauci Stanford doctor, joins the White House Coronavirus Task Force team
Back in June, we wrote about Dr. Scott Atlas when the former chief of neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center and a senior fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution, said that the rise in coronavirus hospitalizations among young people is a good thing because it leads to herd immunity over the long term.
Dr. Atlas, along with the handful of other European doctors, is one of the medical experts who thinks herd immunity is one of the best ways to overcome the deadly coronavirus. Unlike Dr, Anthony Fauci, Dr. Atlas told Americans back in June not to panic about the rise in coronavirus cases. Dr. Atlas later got the attention of US President Trump.
Yesterday, President Trump announced that Dr. Scott Atlas is now joining the Coronavirus Task Force team. President Trump said:
“…This is Scott Atlas. Do you know that? Right? …Scott is a very famous man who’s also very highly respected — Stanford. And he’s working with us and will be working with us on the coronavirus. And he has many great ideas. And he thinks what we’ve done is really good, and now we’ll take it to a new level. And so it’s great to have Scott working along with us. And we appreciate it very much, Scott. Thank you very much, Scott. Thank you very much.”
Back in June, Dr Atlas appeared with the host of “The Story with Martha MacCallum.” During the the show, Dr. Atlas said that since everyone who gets hospitalized for any reason is getting tested for COVID-19, the people making up the inflated statistics could actually be “hospitalized for something else” but “classified as COVID-19 hospitalizations.” Dr. Atlas also used the interview to lash out at medical journals. “Medical journals like Lancet are publishing garbage studies on coronavirus,” Dr. Atlas says.
Also in an op-ed piece in The Hill titled, “The data is in — stop the panic and end the total isolation,” Dr. Atlas provided five facts key facts that are being ignored by those calling for continuing the near-total lockdown:
- Fact 1: The overwhelming majority of people do not have any significant risk of dying from COVID-19.
- Fact 2: Protecting older, at-risk people eliminates hospital overcrowding.
- Fact 3: Vital herd immunity is actually PREVENTED by total isolation policies, prolonging the problem.
- Fact 4: People are dying from being denied other medical care due to hypothetical COVID-19 fatality projections that turned out to be garbage.
- Fact 5: We have a clearly defined population at risk who can be protected with targeted measures.
Below is a Twitter video of President Trump’s announcement.
