Multiple news agencies report that Dr. Scott Atlas has just resigned from his role as president Trump’s senior health advisor on the White House coronavirus task force.

Dr. Atlas is a neuroradiologist with no expertise in the field of epidemiology, but someone who nonetheless was allowed to supplant specialists such as Dr Anthony Fauci (NIAID) and Dr Deborah Birx (CDC) as the administration’s most influential source of medical advice during the worst public health emergency the USA has faced in the last one hundred years.

Scott Atlas is widely regarded among epidemiologists as a charlatan and a dangerous conspiracy theorist who has disparaged mask mandates, spread misinformation about COVID-19, and encouraged the administration to favour a totally disastrous ’herd immunity’ strategy in the face of a pandemic that has alteady killed some 250,000 Americans, and is set to kill more - before a saner science-based administration takes over on 20th January next year.
