Perspectives on the Pandemic | The Bakersfield Doctors

Episode 6 | A Conversation with Dr. Dan Erickson & Dr. Artin Massihi

(Originally published on April 28th, 2020)

When Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi held a press conference on April 22nd about the results of testing they conducted at their urgent care facilities around Bakersfield, California, the video, uploaded by a local ABC news affiliate, went viral. After reaching five million views, YouTube took it down on the grounds that it \"\"violated community standards.\"\" We followed up with the doctors to determine what was so dangerous about their message. What we discovered were reasonable and well-meaning professionals whose voices should be heard.
