Jeffrey Singer joined host Ben Domenech to discuss the ways in which to treat COVID-19 based on his own experience as a general surgeon and Senior Fellow at Cato Institute. Singer discusses how hospitals, schools, and American leaders are calculating risk in their response to the Wuhan virus.
Singer's hospital has delayed all elective procedures due to COVID-19, which includes any surgery for which the patient can choose the date. Singer argued that the system of power, in which the governor can dictate when the economy can reopen, has created imbalanced incentives. The person in charge will always be more cautious than they need to be to avoid criticism later on, which Singer said can hurt people.
