STORY AT-A-GLANCE
A common problem in medicine is that tests and interventions are chosen that do not make sense once the full picture of their implementation is considered. Unfortunately, doctors are not trained to think two steps ahead, and we witnessed this throughout the disastrous COVID-19 response
Most of the options we ultimately chose to combat the pandemic were ineffective, frequently illegal, at odds with the existing medical evidence and often extremely detrimental to society. Nonetheless, anyone who provided reasonable criticisms to those approaches or suggested effective solutions to stop the pandemic was widely criticized and silenced
Much of that debacle resulted from three incompetent and dishonest doctors, with the support of the national media, hijacking the COVID-19 response and becoming public health dictators
Now that plans are being laid to revive the COVID-19 response, it is critical we reflect on the systemic mistakes that were made so we do not repeat those mistakes again
