Twitter removes post from Trump coronavirus advisor Scott Atlas claiming masks don’t work

Twitter has removed a tweet from U.S. President Donald Trump’s novel coronavirus advisor, Scott Atlas, suggesting wearing masks does not help stem the spread of the virus.

In a tweet Saturday morning, Atlas shared an article suggesting face coverings do not help limit the spread of COVID-19.

“Masks Work? NO,” he wrote.

One physician, Dr. Michael Mina, an assistant professor of epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, was among those who called on the social media platform to remove the post.

“This is dangerous misinformation from a primary advisor to the president on the COVID response. This needs to be taken down immediately,” he wrote, “It is simply false.”
