Is the cure worse than the disease? It appears physicians immersed in the midst of it all are seeing it that way. Most compelling was an opinion written by St. Barnabas Hospital Emergency director Daniel G. Murphy MD.

Another physician, Scott Atlas MD who is from Stanford has taken to the airwaves advocating an end to the lockdown. We summarize their perspectives as the controversy will likely grow. Both wrote opinions for the New York Post that appeared April 26th and 27th. Dr. Murphy who has been in the ER room every day for the last two weeks described COVID-19 as been the worst health care disaster of his 30-year career, because of its intensity, duration and potential for lasting impact.
