Unlicensed Dermatologist Suggests People Throw Coronavirus Parties - 2020-03-25
In an article titled "How Medical 'Chickenpox Parties' Could Turn The Tide Of The Wuhan Virus," Perednia says mitigation and suppression of the virus are not viable solutions because "Savings, capital, income, and taxes all evaporate. Companies begin to close, and many will not have the resources to begin again. Massive deficits will become a huge burden for future generations." His credit identifies him as "a physician in Portland, Oregon."
"That would be misleading the public," a startled member of the Oregon Medical Board staff told VICE. "In Oregon, that is a violation of the Medical Practices Act. That would have to be investigated."
Even for the Federalist—the mysteriously funded right-wing rag that has been busy feverishly defending Donald Trump's every decision, even the ones that have killed people, and manufacturing outrage over "manufactured outrage" over Trump's blatant racism—the article is a disgrace.
