Many look to stat metrics from seemingly experts in the field and their interpretation of data they collected as gospel if not dogmatic.

The thing is, without access to their raw data there’s no way to understand their interpretation, or even to validate their conclusion.

People are hanging their beliefs on scientists because scientists are experts of what we can’t understand. But we can understand and it isn’t unreasonable to have their raw data.

Good science begins with academic skepticism. It bothers me that every request I’ve made for raw dats has been ignored or denied. Defensively guarding what must be public domain breeches academic skepticism and becomes procedural suspicion instead.

Publish the raw data and let us make up our own mind on C19.
