Stanford medical professors: COVID-19 death toll estimates may be 'orders of magnitude' too high
They believe the projections are 'deeply flawed'
There is an agenda going into the Nov. elections. C19 is cover.
public health experts from Stanford,
Drs. Eran Bendavid
and Jay Bhattacharya,
current estimates about the coronavirus' fatality rate may be too high by "orders of magnitude."
According to Bendavid and Bhattacharya, both of whom are medical doctors,
public policy experts should focus their measures on protecting the elderly and expanding medical capacity.
"Hospital resources will need to be reallocated to care for the critically ill patients.
Triage will need to improve.
And policy makers will need to focus on reducing risks for older adults and people with underlying medical conditions."
The pair conclude that if their estimates are right, then the universal quarantine measures
"may not be worth the costs it imposes on the economy, community, and individual mental and physical health."
"We should undertake immediate steps to evaluate the empirical basis of the current lockdowns,"
— and projections of the death toll could plausibly be orders of magnitude too high."
