LMAO at posters taking the assertions of these 2 Urgent Care quackjobs as fact. These quacks own a chain of Urgent Care Clinics in Cali, their misguided claims are nothing more than a means to drum up business.I watched that video and re-posted on FB yesterday, and some other medical professionals were quick to try to discredit him and tear down his assertions. I’m not an expert by any means, simply trying to objectively parse all sides to surmise a “truth”.
Firstly, someone posted a screenshot showing that his physician’s license was “canceled”. Then another Dr posted a rebuttal, which unfortunalty only addressed his local numbers and ignored the larger view he presented.
This link is his area’s “health director” also refuting his assertions:
Sampling Bias makes their entire extrapolation of COVID infections and deaths to great California based on their anectodal numbers a load of ****.
likened it to "estimating the average height of Americans from the players on an NBA court."
Why don't you enlighten us with the consolidation of publicly reported data from many other locations that make a compelling case of "millions of cases, small deaths"?Interesting that everyone who provides a rebuttal focuses exclusively on their CA data, which was only the first 5 or so minutes of a 50 minute video.
In the remaining 40 or so minutes, they cited publicly reported data from many other locales (lockdown and non-lockdown) to make a global case of “millions of cases, small deaths”.
I have been hoping for a more comprehensive rebuttal since I am far from an expert on it all.
Russ do you worry that 25% of those infected 60 years and older on the aina end up hospitalized?It seems like it is unanimous to open back up. If they don’t do it soon I’m sure we will see a rebellion. Some owners are already doing it on their own and risking fines or jail. I don’t blame anybody for being desperate at this time. We all have to get along with our lives.
That one is pretty funny, but not as funny as when Dr. Phil said 380,000 people die every year in swimming pools??? WTF I started looking real suspiciously at my pool after that. In case your wondering the number is around 4000, he was just a bit off.This error doesn’t help.
Ok. Let’s assume they are quacks. Better still, let’s say that they are complete idiots. Does that necessarily mean that all of their assertions are wrong?LMAO at posters taking the assertions of these 2 Urgent Care quackjobs as fact.

Anybody else take Medical Statistics during medical school?
If one did he/she would know that Sampling Bias makes their entire extrapolation of COVID infections and deaths to great California based on their anectodal numbers a load of ****.
Carl T. Bergstrom, a biology professor at the University of Washington, noted on Twitter that the doctors' calculations of COVID-19 having a low death rate were not statistically sound and likened it to "estimating the average height of Americans from the players on an NBA court."
