Questioning Conventional Wisdom in the COVID-19 Crisis, with Dr. Jay Bhattacharya
This video starts out with some very interesting questions about the impact of Covid-19 but ends with a slew of horror suggestions from Dr. Jay Bhattacharya.
Dr. Jay Bhattacharya is a professor of medicine at Stanford University. He is a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research and a senior fellow at both the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research and the Stanford Freeman Spogli Institute. His March 24, 2020, article in the Wall Street Journal questions the premise that “coronavirus would kill millions without shelter-in-place orders and quarantines.” In the article he suggests that “there’s little evidence to confirm that premise—and projections of the death toll could plausibly be orders of magnitude too high.”
