Attorney-CPA Joe Cordell and co-host Jill Enders are joined by Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Stanford University professor and physician, and co-author of The Great Barrington Declaration, to discuss a variety of the issues surrounding COVID-19 and the pandemic as a whole.
Dr. Bhattacharya breaks down the insights and motivations that led to the creation of The Great Barrington Declaration and how the lockdowns have impacted the population across different age demographics.
The panel discusses how fear has been a factor in how both the virus is viewed and the responses by public officials, and Dr. Bhattacharya described the prescription offered in the Great Barrington Declaration.
He dissected the shaming aspects of masking and contracting COVID-19, in the context of public health policy and describes why political health policy should never be divided between political lines.
The panel talks about the economic consequences of the pandemic and how livelihoods have been forever changed by the circumstances and responses of COVID-19. Dr. Bhattacharya also highlights the impact that he hopes that The Great Barrington Declaration has, as well as any pushback he has faced.
