[WorldNetDaily] Two California physicians with advanced degrees in microbiology contend that their testing of more than 5,200 patients along with public data show the coronavirus is no more deadly than the seasonal flu and that the sheltering-in-place policy in the United States and most of the Western world not only is unnecessary, it’s harmful.
Drs. Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi, co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, California, told reporters their testing and the data worldwide indicate the case fatality rate is less than one-tenth of 1%.
“Do we need to still shelter in place? Our answer is emphatically no.”
Erickson explained that for hundreds of years, societies have relied on herd immunity to fight viruses.
“Viruses kill people. End of story. The flu kills people. Covid kills people. But for the rest of us, we develop herd immunity. We develop the ability to take this virus in and defeat it,” he said.
“And for the vast majority — 95% of those around the globe — this is true. And when we look at people that have locked down and people that haven’t locked down, we have massive data.
