What if our response to COVID-19 was minimally effective but inflicted a TON of harm? Why do those who dare to ask this question run afoul of the academic establishment?
Dr. Eran Bendavid is associate professor of medicine at Stanford and an infectious disease specialist and health outcomes/health policy researcher. He is co-author of the Santa Clara and Los Angeles COVID-19 antibody prevalence studies. Here’s an episode we did with his co-author Dr. Jay Bhattacharya.
We dive into: what is the actual infection fatality rate of COVID-19 (and on what factors does it depend), did lockdowns help or was the harm caused much worse than any benefit, should we open schools, what’s going on in Israel, Sweden, Africa, India, and Vietnam, why are Stanford doctors writing a letter attacking Dr. Scott Atlas, why are politics and science so intermingled with coronavirus discussions, what is up with a vaccine, why does wealth = health in every study that looks at it, and much more.
