Scott Atlas resigns

Dr. Scott Atlas, the controversial White House coronavirus adviser, is resigning from his position Tuesday, a White House official said Monday.

Fox News, which first reported the resignation, obtained Atlas’s resignation letter, which is dated Dec. 1 and says that he was on a 130-day detail set to expire this week.

Atlas, a neuroradiologist on leave from the Hoover Institution, a conservative think tank affiliated with Stanford University, has no background in infectious diseases.

President Donald Trump invited him to join the task force in August after seeing him on Fox News. Like Trump, Atlas has downplayed the virus’ seriousness, questioning the efficacy of masks and urging the White House to embrace a strategy of "herd immunity."
