What the Doctor Ordered
Trump-Virus task force member Dr. Scott Atlas, who is NOT a virologist and is at best adjacent to viruses (probably having had one at some point in his life) has distinguished himself again, when he twatted out a reaction to Michigan’s renewed Trump-Virus restrictions soon after they were announced Sunday evening:

We have to talk about the damage of the policy itself.
I anxiously await Stanford to issue another distancing statement.
