Stanford distances itself from Dr. Scott Atlas after he urges resistance to public health measures

华盛顿州 Stanford University on Monday evening distanced itself from White House coronavirus task force member 博士. 斯科特·阿特拉斯, a senior fellow at the school’s Hoover Institution, after he urged Michigan residents to “升起” against new public health measures.

Stanford’s position on managing the pandemic in our community is clear. We support using masks, 社交隔离, and conducting surveillance and diagnostic testing. We also believe in the importance of strictly following the guidance of local and state health authorities,” the university said in a tweet.
“博士. Atlas has expressed views that are inconsistent with the university’s approach in response to the pandemic. 博士. Atlas’s statements reflect his personal views, not those of the Hoover Institution or the university.
Atlas had criticized Michigan’s new Covid-19 restrictions 在周日晚上宣布消息后不久,他们在一条推文中, 写作, “The only way this stops is if people rise up.
    “你得到你所接受的. #FreedomMatters #StepUp,” 他说.
    The message — 这与公共卫生官员的共识背道而驰 — immediately fueled new tension between the White House and Michigan Democratic Gov. 格雷琴·惠特默, 联邦和州官员上个月宣布的目标是 据称国内恐怖主义绑架情节.
    回应地图集’ 星期天晚上发推文, 惠特默(Whitmer)告诉美国有线电视新闻网(CNN)的《闪电战》, “我们知道白宫喜欢在密歇根州单挑我们, 尤其是我. 我不会被欺负不追随著名的科学家和医学专家。”
    Speaking to Fox News on Monday, 阿特拉斯 — who removed a reference to the Hoover Institution in his Twitter handlesaid he wasn’t trying tothreaten or incite violencebut rather is justnot very good at Twitter.
    Atlas said the tweet was in response toliterally thousands of emails I get from people all over the country, begging me to figure out how to end the lockdowns,” including from family members of people who have died by suicide amid restrictions.
    And so what I meant, and I’m sorry I’m not very articulate on Twitter, is that basically if you want to change things you have to have your voices heard,” 他解释. “I didn’t mean anything more than that.
      Unlike the government medical experts who advised President Donald Trump in the early months of the pandemic, Atlas has adopted a public stance on the virus much closer to the President’s — 包括谴责学校不能在今年秋天重新开放的想法, “歇斯底里” 并推动恢复大学运动.
      “他正在与我们合作,并将与我们一起研究冠状病毒,” 特朗普在八月说. “他有很多好主意. 他认为我们所做的事情真的很好, 现在我们将其提升到一个新的水平。”
