Former Stanford Medical Center neurology chief Dr. Scott Atlas told Fox News host Martha MacCallum Monday that despite arguments to the contrary, “anyone who prioritizes children would open the schools.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s claim that school reopenings present the “biggest risk for the spread of the coronavirus” is “completely wrong” and “contrary to all the science,” Dr. Scott Atlas said.
“I’m not sure how many times it has to be said, but the risk of children from this disease and the fatality is nearly zero,” Atlas added. “The risk of children for a significant illness is far less from the seasonal flu. This is totally antithetical to the data.”
Atlas also stated that he was amazed by the “ludicrous” level of “hysteria” among Democrats who are pushing to keep schools closed for the start of the 2020-21 academic year.
