Bakersfield, California Doctors Urging End To Lock Downs Goes Viral (Pun Intended)

On April 22nd, 2020, ABC affiliate Channel 23 in Bakersfield California (Kern County) broadcasted a portion of press conference held by Accelerated Urgent Care owners Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi who recommended lifting shelter-in-place orders and explained in detail why they arrived at such a conclusion. Kern County Public Health Services was later questioned about the presentation made by these doctors. The health department's response arguably did little to rebut the COVID-19 facts the doctors presented and basically stated it intended to stick with its existing message and recommended protocols. The highly informative press conference in its entirety was uploaded to the internet in two parts:
