He said he travelled internationally “yesterday” (which would have been February 9th if the video was uploaded the day of the lecture) and didn’t wear a mask.
This seems totally okay to me, FWIW. In most places (e.g., London or the US), it would have seemed a bit overly cautious to wear masks before the end of February, no?
I think his prediction and advice should probably be judged negatively and reflect poorly on him / Center for Health Security, but I’m not sure how harshly he/ CHS should be judged.
I generally agree with that, but it’s worth noting that it was extremely common for Western epidemiologists to repeat the mantra “you cannot do what Asian countries are doing; there’s no way to contain the virus.”
