'No Such Thing As No Risk,' Atlas Says While Pushing Policy Experts Say Will Increase Death - 2020-10-20
A top White House coronavirus adviser pushing to "reopen" the country with minimal COVID-19 restrictions explained Tuesday that there was "no such thing as no risk in life."
The laissez faire comments about COVID from White House adviser Scott Atlas came during an interview with journalist Freddie Sayers, the executive editor of the website UnHerd.
"We cannot guarantee that we can protect everybody," Atlas told Sayers when asked what policies could help protect elderly people living in crowded households if restrictions are largely removed. "There is no such thing as no risk in life."
