Bad assumptions drive bad policy: Masks and viruses, with Roger Koops
What Then Must We Do?
Bretigne Shaffer Podcast
I speak with retired scientist Roger Koops, about the nature of viruses and how flawed assumptions about they operate in the natural world have driven mask recommendations and mandates that may do more harm than good.
We also talk a little about how people in Japan have responded to the virus, and how the national and local governments have reacted.
Roger Koops is a contributing author for AIER, and is also a retired scientist, with a PhD in chemistry and over 25 years in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. He has authored or co-authored several papers on pharmaceutical technology and chemistry.
His article, “The Year of Disguises” is here.
