Dr. Scott Atlas officially resigned from his position as special adviser on the coronavirus to the President on Monday, as his 130-day detail as a special government employee ends this week.
On Twitter Dr. Atlas shared his resignation letter in which he praised the Trump Administration and expressed optimism about the future:
Mr. President, your Operation Warp Speed team delivered on our promised timelines for new drugs and vaccines . . . I sincerely wish the new team all the best as they guide the nation through these trying, polarized times. With the emerging treatments and vaccines, I remain highly optimistic that America will thrive once again and overcome the adversity of the pandemic and all that it has entailed.

Atlas served as a counter balance to other medical officials such as Dr. Anthony Fauci; voicing skepticism over the efficacy of masks and criticizing lockdowns. His unique voice garnered strong praise and criticism alike.
