What if our response to COVID-19 was minimally effective but inflicted a TON of harm? Why do those who dare to ask this question run afoul of the academic establishment? Dr. Eran Bendavid is associate professor of medicine at Stanford and an infectious disease specialist and health outcomes/health policy researcher. He is co-author of the Santa Clara and Los Angeles COVID-19 antibody prevalence studies. We dive into: what is the actual infection fatality rate of COVID-19 (and on what factors does it depend), did lockdowns help or was the harm caused much worse than any benefit, should we open schools, what's going on in Israel, Sweden, Africa, India, and Vietnam, why are Stanford doctors writing a letter attacking Dr. Scott Atlas, why are politics and science so intermingled with coronavirus discussions, what is up with a vaccine, why does wealth = health in every study that looks at it, and much more.

Dr. Jay Bhattacharya is a Stanford physician and economist and co-author of several seroprevalence studies on COVID-19. In this must-hear interview we talk about EVERYTHING. Including the true infection fatality rate, comparisons to influenza, drama around his Santa Clara antibody trial, reinfections, vaccine development, economic and social impacts, why we MUST reopen schools NOW, the horrors of censorship of scientists and opposing dialog, how Stanford is contributing to the problem of stifling dissenting opinions, Dr. Scott Atlas and his advisory role to the president, empathy vs. compassion with regards to COVID, and MUCH MORE. This is a conversation with a really smart and thoughtful scientist who has been too-often maligned and mischaracterized by the media.

It's going to be interesting to listen this episode in 6 months from now and see how these predictions turned out.

I'm what many people would describe as an "anti-vaxxer" but I'm open to the Pro-Vax arguments? Does he have any podcasts that actually address common criticisms of vaccines?

I'm a Lab Tech! :) We care about the patients too! So much so that we would rather recollect a bad sample than report out erroneous results. It is our responsibility to provide accurate labs and avoid the harm of reporting the wrong thing. If everything is STAT, nothing is STAT. We are running hundreds of tests at a time. We're watching for inaccurate results, bad samples (which we have to call, document, cancel, reorder, and sometimes correct results for) critical results (which we have to individually call and document), deltas, analyzer issues (sometimes requiring a screeching halt to all testing until we fix the problem) samples requiring dilutions, answer phone calls, etc. We're sometimes doing all of these at the same time. :D P.S. We're not all introverts! :)
