Dr. Scott Atlas, a former member of President Trump’s COVID Task Force in 2020 and a Robert Wesson Senior Fellow in health care policy at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, joined Maria Bartiromo this morning on Sunday Morning Futures.
Dr. Atlas unloaded on Dr. Tony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx for their failed pandemic strategy that caused more Americans to die and ruined millions of American lives.
Dr. Scott Atlas: The data is the data and the data is being denied by the lockdowners. The data shows the following, the Bjornscoff(?) studies of 24 European countries, the lockdowns did not reduce the deaths during the pandemic. That was a spring 2021 study. A January 2021 study from Stanford’s Ben David and colleagues, lockdowns failed to stop the spread of the infection. In fact, one of the authors said it was pro-contagion, increasing infections. And the most important study was the National Bureau of Economic Research by Rand, in June this year. Everybody should look at it because they showed analysis of 43 countries and all the states that lockdowns increased the excess deaths during the pandemic. Earlier lockdowns increased the deaths during the pandemic. And when the lockdown was instilled, deaths were coming down and deaths started increasing when lockdowns were implemented. So the Birx-Fauci lockdowns that was the advice of the task force the entire year failed to stop the spread of the infection. They failed to stop the dying and they destroyed millions and millions of people, particularly low income families.
Dr. Atlas has a new book out, A Plague Upon Our House.
