Dr. Erickson & Dr. Massihi: COVID-19 Briefing
- Because of an inordinate focus on COVID-19, people with other critical conditions are not coming in for help due to fear. Meanwhile, doctors from numerous states only have COVID-19 paperwork to do.
- Dr. Erickson’s testing showed 6.5% in CA were positive for COVID-19
- The state of CA found 12% have COVID-19, showing it’s far more prevalent than is being reported. It also shows the more you test, the more positives you get.
- 0.03% chance of dying from COVID-19 in the state of CA.
- 96% of those in CA that get COVID-19 recover.
- Out of 649,000 people tested 39% in New York state test positive for COVID-19.
- You have a 0.1% chance of dying from COVID-19 in NY.
- There is a 92% recovery rate of COVID-19 in NY.
- Never before has the healthy population been quarantined.
- When you look at mortality, COVID-19 deaths resemble deaths due to the flu.
- 0.05 chance of dying from COVID-19 in Spain & a 90% chance of recovery without being on a ventilator and without being in a hospital.
- He compares Sweden (no lockdown) and California & Norway (locked down). He found virtually no difference in death rates.
- He asks the very pertinent question of whether this data necessitates shutting down the economy.
- He also speaks to social issues & secondary effects of the effects of COVID-19: Child molestation, spousal abuse, suicide, alcoholism, & depression are all increasing.
- He then discusses the immune system and the importance of exposing the human body to germs so we can develop antibodies.
- He states “sheltering in place” is ruining our immune systems.
- He blames the media for over-reacting and educating people to take measures that are unhealthy for developing the immune system.
- He also points out the lack of logic in social distancing measures due to how COVID-19 exists on plastics for 3 days, yet people are allowed to go to Lowe’s, Costco, etc. but people aren’t allowed to go to work.

- He also asks the very important question as to why are doctors being pressured to add COVID-19 to their diagnostic list for deaths. For more on this: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2020/04/11/hospitals-paid-extra-to-list-patients-as-covid19-3x-as-much-if-the-patient-is-on-a-ventilator/
- Dr. Ericson does not wear a mask.
- He talks about how there are many bacteria and viruses that help us fight off more virulent pathogens. We all need normal flora we obtain by being exposed – the opposite of “sheltering in place.”
He mentions a Wisconsin ER doctor who completely agrees with him. Hospitals are empty, people are not getting elective medical care out of fear, and the secondary effects of focusing only on COVID-19 are accumulating, and they are serious.
For a news article on the same topic: https://www.bakersfield.com/news/two-bakersfield-doctors-cite-their-testing-data-to-urge-reopening/article_eb1959e0-84fa-11ea-9a07-2f2bea880bf9.html
We need to put measures in place so something like this NEVER happens again.
What a breath of fresh air. Thank you Dr. Erickson and Dr. Massihi! Logic and common sense make a come back!
