President Donald Trump’s controversial science adviser, Dr. Scott Atlas, has resigned.

Atlas, a Stanford College neuro-radiologist with no formal expertise in public well being or infectious illnesses, challenged the overwhelming consensus of the scientific neighborhood and criticized stronger efforts, together with the usage of face masks, to regulate the unfold of the brand new coronavirus, the Related Press reported.

Stanford issued a press release distancing itself from Atlas, saying he “has expressed views which are inconsistent with the college’s strategy in response to the pandemic.”

Atlas resigned on the finish of his momentary authorities appointment, the AP reported.
