Paragon’s Dr. Joel M. Zinberg on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal — February 16, 2023

Paragon’s Joel Zinberg was C-SPAN’s Washington Journal to discuss the findings of his new study Freedom Wins: States with Less Restrictive COVID Policies Outperformed States with More Restrictive COVID Policies, cowritten with Paragon’s Brian Blase, Eric Sun, and Casey Mulligan. Dr. Zinberg appeared on the program with host Pedro Echevarria on the morning of February 16, 2023. He fielded questions from the host and callers, and explained the general finding of the new research: “States with severe government interventions did not significantly improve health outcomes (age-adjusted and pre-existing-condition adjusted COVID mortality and all-cause excess mortality) compared to states with more restrained approaches. This may be partly because government interventions appear to have increased excess mortality from non-COVID health conditions.”
