He doubted the use of masks in the Corona crisis and publicly messed with other well-known scientists. Now Scott Atlas is stopping – apparently for strategic reasons.
The controversial corona advisor to incumbent US President Donald Trump, radiologist Scott Atlas, has submitted his resignation. In a letter to Trump that Atlas posted on Twitter Monday night (local time), he wrote, “I’ve worked hard and focused on one thing – saving lives and helping Americans get through this pandemic.”
The radiologist had worked for the US government since August. According to consistent media reports, his contract would have expired after 130 days this week anyway. He now used his declaration of resignation to defend himself against criticism. He always relied on the latest scientific findings and did so “without any political consideration or influence.”
Dispute with star immunologist Fauci
Atlas has spoken out against strict containment measures and questions the usefulness of masks. In doing so, he drew criticism in particular from another member of the Corona working group in the White House: The prominent immunologist Anthony Fauci has publicly disagreed with Atlas’ points of view.
In mid-November, following the tightening of corona regulations in states like Michigan, Atlas wrote on Twitter: “That only ends when people get up.” The tweet was also explosive because just a few weeks earlier a group of suspects had been arrested who, according to investigators, wanted to kidnap and possibly kill Michigan’s governor Gretchen Whitmer because of previous corona measures. Atlas later wrote that he did not want to incite violence.
The radiologist wrote in his resignation letter that he wished the “new team” only the best – and apparently meant that of President-elect Joe Biden. Trump still does not recognize his election victory. Biden has made fighting the pandemic a priority. His inauguration is scheduled for January 20th.
