Covid19 being logically reviewed by two immunology and microbiology specialists, in California but based on nationwide statistics.
Dr Erickson COVID19 briefing:
Does isolation, sheltering in home still make sense?
"The hospitals, the ICUs are empty..they are shutting down floors.."
"When I talk to ER physicians around the country, what is happening - well because Covid has become the focus, people with heart disease, people with cancer, hypertension and various things that are critical are choosing not to come in, based on fear"
"So, what that is doing is forcing the health system to focus on Covid and not focus on a myriad of other things that are critical."
"There are a lot of secondary effects to Covid that are not being talked about"
Two months ago the response was based on fear not facts
"Typically you quarantine the sick. We have never seen where we quarantine the healthy, where you take those without disease and without symptoms and lock them in your home"
"Over the last couple of months we have gained a lot of data."
"A widespread viral infection similar to flu"
"California numbers from yesterday - [..] 12% of Californians were positive for Covid. The initial models were woefully inaccurate, they predicted millions of cases of death, not of prevalence or incidence but death. That is not materialising."
"What is materialising in the State of California is 12% positives."
"You have a 0.03 chance of dying *from* Covid19 in the state of California"
"0.03 chance of dying of Covid in the state of California. Does that necessitate sheltering in place? Does that necessitate shutting down medical systems? Does that necessitate people being out of work?"
"96% of people in California who get Covid, RECOVER with no significant continuing medical problems"
"We are sharing our own data. This is not data filtered by someone, this is our own data"
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — YouTube issued a statement Tuesday regarding the removal of a video press briefing with Accelerated Urgent Care doctors Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi. The video was the first of two videos playing the entire briefing from a press conference last week. Reports of the video being taken down suggest YouTube pulled it for violating community guidelines.
23ABC received an email from YouTube on April 27 giving the station notification the video had been taken down, citing YouTube’s “community guidelines.” 23ABC has appealed the ruling through YouTube.
