He also said he believes America has now reached a point where we can protect those who are most at risk of the virus, all while opening the country back up.
"We also understand how to socially protect with distancing and other sorts of sensible measures elderly people who have no risk factors in our family or friends.

This afternoon, Dr. Scott Atlas will join John and Ken live on air to answer a few of their own questions. Make sure you're listening to KFI AM 640!
