Dr. Francis Collins, Former NIH Director, Blames Misinformation for the Deaths of 300,000

An estimated 300,000 people died because they passed over "a free, safe, and effective vaccine" after misinformation clouded their judgment, he added. "Our culture war is killing people" and misinformation, often spread over social media, is at least partially to blame…

Misinformation is "contagious," Collins said, especially in our current environment where everyone has split into "tribes" of like-minded people that influence their perspective…

But the following quote is really telling. The powers that be are scared to death of uncontrolled scientists and doctors doing research. It is one of their Achille’s heels (there are others)—because after 300 trials showing HCQ works for early COVID, they cannot defeat HCQ. They can try, by performing skewed metaanalyses that omit most of the small trials, but it isn’t convincing. So Francis Collins wants only big, national trials that people like himself can control for future pandemics.
