A bill by House Republicans seeks to end the COVID-19 public health emergency that has been in place for about three years. NTD spoke to Dr. Scott Atlas, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford, for analysis on whether it should be continued or not, and how it affects the U.S. healthcare system and Medicaid. Atlas said that it’s a good idea to end the emergency because high-risk Americans are nearly all vaccinated and there is no evidence of hospital overcrowding, and because the virus is less lethal than it was in the early stages of the outbreak.
