A flawed case for not testing people without symptoms for #COVID19. You can't "protect the vulnerable" without identifying infectious carriers. No: "testing is intended to save lives"
this article doesn't spell it out, but Atlas's insistence on only testing the "vulnerable" is key to the Great Barrington Declaration. see this op-ed by two of its authors, "The Case Against COVID Tests for the Young and Healthy":
Important read. “Sweden was the only major Western country that kept schools open for kids 15 and younger throughout the pandemic, with no masks or mass testing. How’d it go? Zero Covid-19 deaths among 1.8 million children attending day care or school.”
Another misguided Op-Ed on #COVID19, this time by SIEPR's Jay Bhattacharya and who argue AGAINST asymptomatic testing to stop chains of transmission that may start in the young and healthy but won't end there.
Hunting for asymptomatic cases encourages pointless shutdowns with few lives saved. Protect the vulnerable instead of testing the young, write Dr. Jay Bhattacharya and

Jay Bhattacharya and Martin Kulldorff apparently used the stupid arguments in their Sept 3 WSJ oped to fish for suckers. Looks like they caught some. #GreatBarringtonDeclaration
