Trump’s favorite COVID-19 adviser appeared on Russia’s state-controlled RT network on Saturday to declare the coronavirus pandemic mostly under control and insist that lockdowns are in fact “killing people.”
Scott Atlas, a neuroradiologist, was featured on RT Go underground as “one of only two men the US president apparently listens to about the pandemic.”
He admitted that COVID-19 has been “fatal” and stressed that “this cannot be underestimated”. But he added that many lives had also been “lost to the policy of closures,” which he described as an “epic public policy failure on the part of people who refuse to accept that they have. wrong”.
“Public health leaders… They’re killing people with their creepy shutdown policies,” he said, without specifying who he was referring to. Contrary to his claims, studies have actually shown that tens of thousands of lives could have been saved with previous lockdowns.
Atlas went on to complain about the criticism he has faced since joining the president’s task force after Trump saw him on Fox News echoing many of his own ideas about the virus.
“When you show up and stand with the President of the United States in an attempt to help the country in the world’s greatest crisis, you must be destroyed by the media in the United States. It’s a sad statement in America that the United States is hysterical about this, ”Atlas said.
Atlas’ appearance on the network came as another member of President Trump’s coronavirus task force expressed “real issues” with him in an interview with The Washington Post.
Dr Anthony Fauci, an infectious disease expert who has faced the wrath of Trump and his allies for daring to contradict the President’s upbeat claims, said Atlas was a “smart guy who talks about things I think about. that he has no real idea, or knowledge or experience, he keeps talking about things that when you dissect and analyze them, it just doesn’t make sense.
