McCain-Katz, who was appointed by Trump to SAMHSA in 2017, acknowledged that children get severe symptoms from the virus “in rare cases”, but “it is not a serious disease with a great, great majority of children”. Some Trump has also repeated this for months.
“And when we put them in school with security measures, why can’t they go to school?” She said in an interview at one point.
“So, this reaction of Kovid and Kovid’s nonstop is lost in all of the 24/7 horror and if you can’t find something to talk about, it would seem to me that they make things up. It’s Just does, ”McCance-Katz said. Another point in the interview is the media coverage of the epidemic.
Macasson-Katz also expressed disappointment with the way states have handled the growing epidemic.
“There was no agreement to remove this nonstop ban and quarantine and isolation and anything that would please people,” she said. “You can’t go to a movie. You can’t go to a football game.”
McCain-Katz, a psychiatrist with a Yale doctorate in infectious disease epidemiology, argued at one point that the shutdown was too severe last spring.
“I’m going to say that,” he said. “We shut down the whole country before the virus, in my opinion, got a chance to roam the whole country. We used a sledgehammer when I think we needed a scalpel.”
He himself opposed the shutdown, not the epidemic, actually killed thousands.
“When you shut down an entire health system, when you do this, you want to talk with Kovid about high-risk risks for morbidity and mortality, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, pulmonary diseases But you take away people’s ability to get any health care, ”she said.
“All you’re doing is making sure that if they get infected, it’s going to have the maximum possible negative impact on them and it will end in death for thousands – that’s what we’re seeing, And it’s just terrible. “
McCain-Katz argued that the economy and the reopening of schools are integral to the mental health of Americans.

“I am amazed that I am being attacked on a personal basis in a way that, frankly, distracts my energy and the energy of all the teams that we are working to deliver together, and therefore our possibility Or the pace decreases as we try to help humanity and the country resolve and address this issue, ”said Saloi.
In both interviews, Caputo also attacked media coverage.
“And because it’s the Trump administration, you don’t feel it, I think, maybe when you were offered the position, but part of the deal is you move and you hit a target on your back, it’s No? ”Kaputo asked Saui.
“Honestly, I think I was naive when I made the decision,” said Saloui, who spent 30 years at the drug company GlaxoSmithKline as the chairman of Global Vaccines.
“I think, you know, the press in particular was informing, but I’m now factually convinced that the press has only one purpose, which is to shape opinion and distort information in a way, Which allows an opinion to be shaped “added. “And I think that is unethical, extremely disappointing. And I really hope that society will move towards changing that normal situation.”
Meanwhile, Caputo said in his Facebook post on Sunday that he was under attack by the media, that his physical health was under question and that his “mental health has definitely failed.”
