Dr. Jay Bhattachary from Stanford is advocating end the lockdowns, and just give

the vaccine to only the older population, and those at higher risk, making the argument only for those who are not elderly and without at higher risk.

They believe the lock down is much worse than Covid in this population, and believe herd immunity would be achieved with only vaccinating this older population, letting the younger population live their lives "normally"

A number of scientists pointed out the declaration ignores increasing evidence of younger people suffering long term effects of covid, "long haulers"

It should also be pointed out that his specialty is clinical outcomes as it relates to economics

He is a bean counter

1. You misspelled his name. I believe the correct spelling is "Battshittery."

5. We have vaccines on the horizon, and they are still people advocating this herd

immunity "experiment" with people's lives

It should be noted that this physician specialty puts emphasis on economic outcomes.

It looks to me like he is a bean counter, and his primary concern is economics

2. Well, alrighty then..."thin the herd," as it were.

As an elderly person myself, I say, "Hooray! Immunize me and let the youngsters (those less than 70 years old) fend for themselves."

Obviously:

3. He's one of the co-authors of the "Great Barrington Declaration"...

...drafted by the American Institute for Economic Research.

6. economics is full of really stupid people

who act like they are smart.

Like the Trumpest asshole Ali Velshi would have on his program routinely. That guy (can't remember his name) was a complete moron.

8. This was on CNN's Smerconish this morning. What makes this even more disturbing

is pushing this potential harm for thousands, while a vaccine is on the horizon that will solve the problem next year

7. yup. He was on Smerconish this morning pushing this. Interestingly they did not

identify the "economic" focus on clinical outcomes that is in his profile

4. you first Mr. Bhattachary

if you have a family then we will give the vaccine to all family members over 65 and the rest of you get a massive dose of the virus.

8 weeks later we will check on the result of the experiment.

Then you can have an opinion.

10. I made the mistake of listening to him for a couple of minutes . ..

and had to turn, shaking my head. The doctor is also from Stanford Univ. I believe, same as Dr. Atlas. I don't know what they are smoking but I sure don't want any of it.

14. He doesn't represent the majority of doctors there, or elsewhere, and if you look at his

credentials his profile is on clinical outcomes as it relates to economics

People like this do tarnish the universities they come from

It seems that perhaps that medical institutions need to be offering more courses in ethics

11. I'm beginning to picture Stanford as a gilded anus . . .

. . . crapping out one toxic dropping after another, each one advocating for more death, suffering and lies.

This clown.

Scott Atlas.

The administrators who decided to give the vaccine to administrators first at the medical center, NOT doctors and nurses.

Oh, yeah, and Elizabeth Holmes, reaching back a bit further in time.

13. You can add Shockley to that list also. In all fairness most of the physicians at Stanford do not

endorse this approach, along with most in the medical community

No surprise that he is pushing this in the WSJ, and on fox

That he decides to push this now with what is happening here in California is outrageous, and highlights that more course work in ethics need to be taught

16. Neither of my ery healthy 20 somethings want to be unhealthy in any way for the rest of their life.

and they work hard with eating healthy, exercising for health and making healthy choices every single day.
