White House coronavirus task force member, Dr. Scott Atlas, urged the people of Michigan to “rise up” after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced new coronavirus restrictions, in a tweet posted Sunday.

“The only way this stops is if people rise up,” Atlas tweeted. “You get what you accept. #FreedomMatters #StepUp”

Atlas followed up with a tweet to clarify he does not condone violence, “Hey. I NEVER was talking at all about violence. People vote, people peacefully protest. NEVER would I endorse or incite violence. NEVER!!”

Gov. Whitmer announced in a news conference Sunday that Michigan will begin a “three-week pause targeting indoor social gatherings and other group activities.”

The new restrictions will temporarily halt in-person instruction at high schools and colleges, indoor dine-in service at restaurants and bars and high school athletics as well as close some businesses, including movie theaters, bowling alleys and casinos.

Whitmer urged the public to “double down” with precautions such as wearing a mask and keeping distance to avoid a second stay-at-home order.

Last month, Atlas received backlash after he had suggested that masks do not work to stop the spread of the coronavirus. He tweeted “Masks work? NO,” which has since been removed by Twitter.

“I don’t understand why the tweets were deleted,” Atlas said in an email, calling out Twitter’s censorship.

He said his tweet was intended to show that “general population masks and mask mandates do not work,” and he clarified that the correct policy is to use masks when one cannot socially distance.

Atlas added that infections exploded even with mandates in Los Angeles County, Miami-Dade County, Hawaii, Alabama, the Philippines, Japan and other places.

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
