Dr. Scott Atlas explains why California’s tiered reopening system is flawed

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – As more people are getting vaccinated across the United States, some lawmakers are believe California needs to lose the tiered reopening system.

Dr. Scott Atlas explained why Gavin Newsom’s tiered reopening system has no science behind it with KUSI’s Paul Rudy on Good Morning San Diego.

Dr. Atlas has been comparing the data from various states, and asserts that it proves the lockdowns were not effective. At this point, he explained, we have data to compare to find out what response worked best.

Atlas said, “the comparison is Florida, compared to places like California for instance. And Florida has beaten 70% of the other states in excess mortality rate, during this year of March 15, 2020, to middle of February during the pandemic, and that’s the fact.” Adding, “the lockdowns were not just not effective, they were harmful.”
