Texas Doctor Wants COVID-19 To 'Go Through' Population — 'Kids First'

Chuck Todd and Katy Tur interviewed Dr. Sudip Bose, who wants to reopen so that we can all get the virus. But in a "calculated" way.

An emergency room doctor from Odessa, Texas told MSNBC on Tuesday that he believed the state’s economy should open back up to allow the virus to “go through all of us.”

“Is Odessa ready for more people in public and a spike that could come with it?” MSNBC host Chuck Todd asked Dr. Sudip Bose.

“It’s tough decisions, like, which direction would you rather be wrong?” Bose replied. “For us, a tiered opening does make sense at this time and from the emergency room here, to be brutally honest, I think that this virus, in my opinion, is going to go through all of us throughout the United States.”

The doctor predicted that vaccines would not be of much help against COVID-19.

“The flu vaccine was 50% effective and you really have to get things right,” he explained. “If you don’t bind that properly, actually antibodies bind to it and it increases advancement into the cell. So long story short, I don’t think a vaccine is going to rescue us or a med, looking at the trials currently.”

Bose continued: “I think the best case scenario is you open things up in a calculated manor based on numbers and facts, not feelings. And let it go through. And the best case scenario, it may go through our kids first.”

The doctor claimed “kids are almost 100% protected.”

“And then it goes to their young parents,” he added. “And what we did in Italy that was good, was culturally those kids went to grandma and grandpa and they got sick. So, we’ve got to do this in a calculated manner.”

“And I think it is time to open our economy now,” Bose said.
