Trump-loving publication pitches 'voluntary infection' as 'outside the box'

solution to COVID-19 pandemic

Published 4 mins ago on March 25, 2020
By Brad Reed

The Federalist, a right-wing publication that is one of President Donald Trump’s most reliable defenders, has published an editorial that advocates deliberately spreading the coronavirus in a “controlled” manner as part of a strategy to end the pandemic more quickly.

The editorial, written by an Oregon-based dermatologist named Douglas Perednia, argues that social distancing will do too much harm to America’s economy, and that more “outside the box” measures are required to curb the disease.

The solution, he writes, is controlled voluntary infection.

“CVI involves allowing people at low risk for severe complications to deliberately contract COVID-19 in a socially and medically responsible way so they become immune to the disease,” he writes. “People who are immune cannot pass on the disease to others.”

2. The jury is still out about whether one gets immunity

after contracting the virus, anyway. It's a stupidly foolish idea from that fact alone.

4. I know who should be in your control project


Let's start with you and anyone else who thinks they can control the outcome of a virus.

6. If they lock them in somewhere and keep them there as the virus runs it's course,

I might go along with that. Stock the place with food and the usual cold medicine. Make sure they have a couple of their own nurses or EMT's along for the ride. No one gets out until everyone is well and the place has been sanitized. Then restock for the next bunch.

8. Doug could buy as gallon of gas to help the petrochemical industry. Then he could buy

a pack of Camels and a lighter to help the tobacco industry. Then he could douse himself with gas and smoke a cigarette to help the funeral industry. And then everybody could say nice things about Doug's sincerity and his brave efforts to help the economy
