Not a doctor is right. More like his chief private attorney; anticipating what stress awaits his client after the election. That there is no censure from his own party on this behavior is a larger abuse, in my mind. That also may be more than just a footnote in this country's dangerously dysfunctional history.Could not disagree more w Dr.Atlas conclusion..only one of many..back out a few hundred focal lengths..74 year old,obsess white man,high cholesterol..a high stress jail b,documented history,in real time of ultra high risk behavior,stadium size gatherings with 10's of thousands of strangers in multiple locations in the US..dozens of office staff members come up positive,many hospitalized..and then the 74 yo old man comes up Covid positive w symptoms and is helicoptered. to a military hospital for experimental drug treatments..
If you take part of that as fact..
No doctor,Maybe Dr.OZ ,Dr Laura or Dr. Kevorkian would tell the patient to take a public relations SUV ride as therapy..but no real doctor tells a Covid 19 patient to return to an office w @20+ positives, no real doctor would tell someone days,not weeks out of a hospital bed to go maskless to stadium rallies full of unknowns,no masks..
Atlas is a problem, but the doctor's advice from the top down of the US government is malpractice at the absolute minimum..
You can't expect regular citizens to have a clear, what to do example when one doesn't exist.
A doctor telling a 74 year old fat guy who just got covid to go to parties and concert style events is an idiot not a doctor
How a Bizarre Claim About Masks Has Lived on for Months
I wouldn't expect you to agree with Gupta & others - you've been incredulous & contemptuous with just about every expert I've referenced & quoted from...no surprises there. The bigger question is whether or not politicians & policy makers will listen to Gupta & her colleagues. She is one of the framers of the "Great Barrington Declaration" with Bhakdi as one of the signers:I don't agree with Gupta, but she is at least trying to make scientific claims in the appropriate venues. I can't be the only one who sees projection when the two are talking about digging too deep into their initial opinions and not wanting to change when hit with conflicting data. Pot meet kettle. I mean, hasn't she made the claim that the UK already had herd immunity or were very near it?
And their final conclusion is that we should do what Sweden is doing*.
*except for the part where they nearly decimated the care homes and then triaged those people to prevent the hospitals from being overrun.
I'm not so sure about that. The NEJM just published this paper:That is one vaccine candidate. I don't think we should lump all of them together especially when they are using different platforms. That is how we get only 50% of people saying they will get the vaccine. If you don't want to get one, I doubt that they will be mandatory for the majority of people.
It's unhealthy & potentially dangerous to work out while wearing masks especially with more vigourous, higher intensity, max VO2 type efforts:File this under "shocker". Apparently they were only mandated to wear masks when they were NOT working out. Who could've guessed this would happen. Different circumstances but I am really curious if Yates infected Kruiswijk.
