Et Tu, Stanford?! Top Epidemiologist Silenced for Following the Science

NCLA’s Executive Director and General Counsel, Mark Chenoweth, chats with Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, professor of medicine at Stanford University, research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration.

Dr. Bhattacharya was attacked and ridiculed in 2020 for promoting a “focused protection” strategy as an alternative to mass lockdowns. Although science and subsequent events have proven him right, Dr. Bhattacharya has been shunned and largely silenced by his home institution of Stanford University throughout 2021.
