Dr. Phil Talks About Statement Comparing COVID-19 and Car Accident Fatalities
After some inflammatory comments on Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Dr. Phil is setting the record straight. On Laura Ingraham’s show, he argued that since we don’t shut down the country due to the high number of car accidents and tobacco-related deaths, we shouldn’t do so for COVID-19. He also said that 360,000 people die from swimming pools. The real number of drowning deaths each year is about 3,500, per the CDC. Now, he says he was just making a point about life’s inherent risks.
