Newsmax Medical Contributor Dr. David Samadi told Newsmax TV on Monday that the “panic and hysteria” over the spread of the novel coronavirus “is out the door.”
Samadi, announced Monday to his new position with Newsmax TV, referred to the revelation from the World Health Organization earlier in the day that those who are infected with the novel coronavirus but are not showing symptoms of Coronavirus Disease-2019, or COVID-19, are highly unlikely to transmit the germ.
“The big thing is that the panic and hysteria is out the door,” Samadi said on “Greg Kelly Reports.” “We can reopen our America. Forty million people have lost their job as a result of this scientific data that was wrong. This is very big news for the country.”
The announcement by WHO is a deviation from early reports that indicated the virus could be easily spread from person-to-person, even if the person with COVID-19 has little to no symptoms.
“They are taking a (180)-degree turn,” said Samadi, the director of Men's Health and Urologic Oncology at St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, New York. “Because we didn’t know who would be passing this virus or not, we made everybody do something called social distancing.
“It’s too bad that these researchers, the papers are not making it to Lancet, and mainstream media is not covering to the extent. This is probably one of the biggest news that we’ve had since the coronavirus outbreak.”
